Description

For some years now, it’s been happy season for books and publishing in India. But the most enduring success story in English-language trade publishing in the country—indeed in all of Asia—began long before this.

These commemorative volumes of the finest writing published by Penguin are dedicated to the finest Indian authors and authors of Indian origin anywhere in the world. Showcased here are authors who have topped best-seller charts in India and abroad, and won virtually every major literary prize including the Nobel Prize, the Jnanpith Award, the Man Booker Prize, the Sahitya Akademi Award and the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize.

It is unlikely you will find a richer, more representative collection of writing from or about South Asia. This series of Fiction and Non-Fiction in 5volumes bring the best in contemporary Indian and international literature to readers everywhere.
