Harper Collins has published an English translation of the Central and Kerala Sahitya Academy Award winning Malayalam novel ‘Manushyanu Oru Aamukham’ written by Sh. Subhash Chandran. This is one among the finest novels I have read in the recent times. I strongly recommend all my non-malayali book-loving friends to grab a copy of the English version titled ‘A Preface to Man’. The book as the author says is an emotional history of a century dealing with love, caste and religion narrated through so many characters over three generations of a feudal Nair family in Kerala.
