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 recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
