Across The Black Waters
Across The Black Waters
Description
About the Book:

Across The Black Waters, written in 1939, is widely regarded as outstanding among the earlier novels of Mulk Raj Anand. It has been translated into eleven European languages. With the British Council adapting this war-time novel - overlooking the claims of classics like All Quiet on the Western Front - into a play to mark the 80th anniversary of the end of World War I, Anand has finally got the recognition that has eluded this novel.

About the Author:

MULK RAJ ANAND was born in December, 1905, in Peshawar (no in Pakistan), and educated at the Universities of Punjab and London. He began his career by writing for T. S. Eliot's Criterion and went on to win international fame with his heart-warming portraits of the Indian landscape and its working class. Author of more than a dozen novels, of countless short stories and literary essays, he was honoured with Sahitya Akademi Award, the coveted Indian award for literary writing, in 1972.

Back of Book:

'Across the Black Waters is probably (Anand's ) best novel since Untouchable, for it exactly communicates the claustrophobic tension of men in the front line, the imminence of death, and the pervading sense of inevitability which is the source of Anand's anger, and at the same time, is at the root of so much Indian fiction. We have lose awareness that this is an Indian novel...'

'Anand makes a universal statement about the nature of war apart from the particular tragedy of the Indian spays in Flanders in 1914. His descriptions of brutality match in compassion and outrage, and perhaps also in poetic flair, those of Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon, or David Jones.'

Testimonials

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
