Mulk Raj Anand Greatest Short Stories

New Enlarged EditionThe present selection is an attempt to represent the wide range and variety of Mulk Raj Anands short stories. The first group represents the stories of lyric awareness. As in all poetry, the themes are elemental, such as birth and death, beauty, love and childhood, and the treatment often reveals a symbolic dimension added to realistic presentation.The prevailing mood of the second group of stories in this selection is of the tears at the heart of things. These stories are naturally allied to the brief tales of lyric awareness but with a difference. Through his acute understanding of the complex social forces at work, Anand describes an India where tradition clashes with modernity.The range and variety of Anands short stories are not only in mood, tone and spirit but also in locale, characters and form. The setting ranges from the Punjab (as in The Parrot in the Cage) to Uttar Pradesh (as in The Price of Bananas) and Kashmir (as in Kashmir Idyll). Both the village and the city get almost equal representation. Mulk Raj Anands stories are a museum of human nature. Among the Indian writers of the short story in English, he has few peers.

Maitree Limpichart, Stephen Landau Lives of Thai Temple Boys. A Collection of Short Stories from Thailand

Lives of Thai Temple Boys is a cross-cultural coming-of-age collection of stories based on the author's experiences in the late 1950s and early 1960s as an adolescent temple boy from the South of Thailand then living at a Buddhist temple and going to school in Bangkok.Although they very much embody aspects of the culture of Thailand, these stories are also universal and recognizable for the human emotions and relationships they portray. Maitree Limpichart writes insightfully and with the humor, surprise, and irony for which he is well known. It has been remarked that one can see in Limpichart's writing similarities to the short stories of the American author O. Henry.The subject matter is intriguing and wide-ranging as a sampling of the stories illustrates: the quirkiness of a feminine boy (Order and Propriety in the Temple), conflicting Thai and Western notions of nudity (Life at the Water Faucet), parental death and loss (A Telegram from Home), perseverance and dedication (The Remarkable Mr. Ying), and the personality who stands out and marches to the beat of his own drummer (Ai Neuk and More About Ai Neuk).Originally serialized in magazines, these stories were first published in book form as a collection in 1976. The book was selected by the Thai Ministry of Education to be included on a supplemental reading list, and since 1976 has been reprinted 36 times. To date, more than 700,000 copies have been sold in Thailand. It remains a favorite among young adults and ad...

Maxim Gorky Old Izergil and Other Stories

Maxim Gorky is a Russian writer and playwright, one of the most significant and well-known Russian writers and thinkers in the world. Gorky was nominated five times for the Nobel Prize in Literature. Having begun with romantically inspired novels, songs in prose and short stories, Gorky then turned to dramaturgy. At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, he became famous for his works in a revolutionary spirit. Gorky is also the author of cycles of essays, autobiographical novels, plays, two major novels, and documentary stories. Maxim Gorky is in fact a pen name of Alexei Maximovich Peshkov, which first appeared in 1892 as a signature for the short story Makar Chudra. This collection of short stories, named after the famous story Old Izergil, presents, perhaps, the best-known stories of Gorky, which reveal his many-sided writing talent. The main pathos of the writer's works is the dream of "new people", fearless and free, possessing the highest intellectual and physical abilities, able to achieve overarching goals beyond the possible, including even immortality.

To date, more than 700,000 copies have been sold in Thailand. It remains a favorite among young adults and ad...
