Book Description
‘Anand’s picture is real, comprehensive and subtle and his gifts in all moods from farce to comedy, from pathos to tragedy, from the realistic to the poetic, are remarkable’ —V.S. Pritchett Coolie portrays the picaresque adventures of Munoo, a young boy forced to leave his hill village to fend for himself and discover the world. His journey takes him far from home to towns and cities, to Bombay and Simla, sweating as servant, factory-worker and rickshaw driver. It is a fight for the survival that illuminates, with raw immediacy, the grim fate of the masses in pre-Partition India. Together with Untouchable, Coolie places Mulk Raj Anand among this century’s finest Indian novelists writing in English. ‘Munoo is a universal kind of figure. He is the passion not only of India but of mankind’
