From the Back of the Book

Mr. Anand's writing has an attractive sensous 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. The stories have the power to charm

Weekend Review

Mr. Anand is not a mere storyteller, he is a poet as well. There runs a fine poetic streak through his stories.

Alfred Perles in Life and Letters
