About the Author

Mulk Raj Anand (1905-2004) was one of the most prominent novelists and short story writers, and with Raja Rao and R.K. Narayan, is regarded as a founding lather of English Fiction in India. He captured the puissance of the Punjabi and Hindi idiom to faithfully bring alive the sights, smells and sounds of the Indian landscape and its people.

Son of a coppersmith and a soldier, Mulk Raj Anand was born in Peshawar. He was educated at the Universities of Punjab, Cambridge and London. Recipient of many coveted honours, he was awarded the Sahitya Akademi Award in 1971, Padma Bhushan in 1967 and held the prestigious Tagore Chair at the Punjab University.

Across the Black Waters is widely rated as an outstanding novel and his most significant after The Untouchable. It is a simple story about the ultimate futility and sorrow of war. It is a journey not just from a small village in Punjab to Flanders, from farmer to soldier, field to front-but from a soul that nurtures to one that kills. Overlooking the claims of war classics like All Quiet on the Western Front, the British Council selected and adapted this novel into a play to mark the 80th anniversary of the end of World War I. The Book has been translated into eleven European languages. Cover Design : Vision Studio
