A very good copy in original cloth, torn and defective dust wrapper. First edition, pp.175. Mulk Raj Anand, 1905-2004, was an Indian writer in English, notable for his depiction of the lives of the poorer castes in traditional Indian society. One of the pioneers of Indian fiction in English, he, together with R. K. Narayan, Ahmad Ali and Raja Rao, was one of the first India-based writers in English to gain an international readership. This is a collection of short stories, including the critically acclaimed title piece. Presenting characters that usually emerge from an Indian rural background, these stories reveal Anand's deep understanding of the contemporary social problems facing India. They are told with his characteristic subtle sense of humour.
