The much acclaimed novel is featured amongst some of the classics of world literature such as The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens, Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw, Typhoon And Other Stories by Joseph Conrad. “It is indeed a pleasure that books from our small language cross the frontiers of language and reach to places quite unexpected” says James in his Facebook post.
