Meenakshi Mukherjee in the Hindu Literary Review:
Purushottama Lal, who will turn 80 in August this year, has no secretary and no office. he operates from his study.
Over 3,500 titles have appeared so far under this imprint — in elegantly produced , handloom sari-bound volumes — with the title embossed in exquisite calligraphy .
Today, when a budding poet tremulously gets in touch with the legendary Professor P. Lal with her first manuscript, she might not be aware that if published, she is likely to become part of a great tradition. Writers Workshop had published Nissim Ezekiel, A.K. Ramanujan , Adil Jussawalla, Kamala Das among others in the 1960s, Keki Daruwalla , Jayanta Mahapatra , Agha Shahid Ali, Meena Alexander , Suniti Namjoshi in the 1970s, Vikram Seth in 1981 and many more such poets who have subsequently become part of the world-wide-web of fame.
