-Manchester Guardian, UK
Anand is an excellent reconteur, the stories have the power to charm.
Anand’s picture is real, comprehensive, and subtle, and the shifts in moods, from farce to comedy, from pathos to tragedy, and from the realistic to the poetic, are remarkable.
-V S Pritchett, British Literary Critic
Anand is indeed adept in the art of spinning a yarn.
