From the Back of the Book

Mulk Raj Anand writes about the Indians much as Chekhov writes about the Russians, or Sean O' Faolain or Frank O'Conner write about the Irish. At the same time his manner is quite his own Mr. Anand's writing has an attractive sensuous quality. He somehow charges his pages with heat, colour, scents. He has most of all the touch the power that makes the writer great he can give human weakness a dignity of its own.

Elizabeth Bowen in Tatler

He is an excellent raconteur, telling a story with grace and point. He commands an easy urbane style… The stories have the power to charm
