Most widely held works by Pankaj Mishra
The writer and the world : essays by V. S Naipaul( Book )

26 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For forty years V.S. Naipaul has been traveling and, through his writing, creating one of the most wide-ranging and sustained meditations on our world. Now, for the first time, his finest shorter pieces of reflection and reportage are collected in one volume. With an abiding faith in the redemptive power of modernity balanced by a sense of wonder about the past, Naipaul has explored an astonishing variety of societies and peoples through the many-sided prism of his own experience. Whether writing about the Muslim invasions of India, Mobutu's mad reign in Zaire, or the New York mayoral elections, he has demonstrated again and again that no one has a shrewder intuition of the ways in which power works, of the universal relation of the exploiter and the exploited. And no one has put forth a more consistently eloquent defense of the dignity of the individual and the value of civilization. Infused with a deeply felt humanism, The writer and the world attests powerfully not only to Naipaul's status as the great English prose stylist of our time but also to his keen, often prophetic, understanding

Beer in the Snooker Club by Waguih Ghali( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set amidst the turbulence of 1950s Cairo, Beer in the Snooker Club is the story of Ram Bey, an over-educated, under-ambitious young Egyptian struggling to find out where he fits in. Ram's favorite haunt is the fashionable Cairo Snooker Club, whose members strive to emulate English gentility; but his best friends are young intellectuals who devour the works of Sartre and engage in dangerous revolutionary activities to support Egyptian independence. By turns biting and comic, Beer in the Snooker Club--the first and only book by Waguih Ghali--became a cult classic when it was first published and remains a timeless portrait of a loveable rogue coming of age in turbulent times."--Page 4 of cover
