Mulk Raj Anand (1905-2004) was born in Peshawar and educated at the universities of Punjab and London. After earning his Ph.D. in Philosophy in 1929, Anand began writing notes for T. S. Eliot's magazine Criterion as well as books on diverse subjects such as cooking and the arts. Recognition came with the publication of his first two novels, Untouchable (1935) and Coolie (1936). These were followed, among others, by his well-known trilogy The Village (1939), Across the Black Waters (1940) and The Sword and the Sickle (1942).

By the time he returned to India in 1946, he was the best-known Indian writer abroad. Making Bombay (now Mumbai) his home and centre of activity, Anand plunged with gusto into India's cultural and social life. Writing remained, however, his main pre-occupation, and in 1953 he published Private Life of an Indian Prince his finest literary achievement. In 1980 appeared his best non-fictional work, Conversations in Bloomsbury (revised ed. 2011) a wide-ranging dialogue with T. S. Eliot, Aldous Huxley, Virginia Woolf and others. He also founded and edited the renowned Indian art magazine Marg, and worked ceaselessly on his monumental autobiographical fiction, The Seven Ages of Man. A recipient of Padma Bhushan and several honorary doctorates, Anand's complete papers are now housed in the National Archives of India (New Delhi).
