M. Mukundan, one of the pioneers of modernity in Malayalam literature, was born in 1943 in the former French colony of Mahe. Though he carved a niche for himself in Malayalam literature through his existentialist novels that heralded an era of creative anarchy in Kerala, Mukundan never ceased to experiment not only with themes and locales but also with form. Hence, he is regarded as a writer who appeals to all generations of readers.

He is recipient of many national and international awards including AChevalier des Arts et des Lettres from the French Government, Sahitya Akademi Award and the prestigious Cross Word Award. The Library of Congress has in its collection thirty-two works by Mukundan and two on him.
