Anannya Prokashoni - Publishing years of literary excellence

Publishing over 100 new books each year, Anannya Prokashoni remains one of the biggest publication houses in Bangladesh. Spearheaded by Monirul Haque, the proprietor, the publication house has released over 2000 books spanning a myriad of themes since its inception.

“Our favourite books to publish are those highlighting the Liberation War and Language Movement. However, we are in dire need of more manuscripts on these topics,” stated Monirul Haque.

This year the publication house introduced many books written by key figures from the showbiz industry, including a memoir by Abul Hayat titled “Jibon Khatar Footnote”, Afzal Hossain's “Jahangir Badshah'r Ghora”, “Kataghuri” by Kanakchapa, Shanarei Devi Shanu's “Lal Epitaph”. Anannya has also published a few works by Fakir Alamgir.

This year the publication company also released a new children's book by Anisul Haque titled “Chhoto Chhoto Kishore Golpo.” Popular writer Emdadul Haque Milon also released a few titles this year, and has worked with Anannya Prokashoni closely throughout his writing career.

Anannya Prokashoni has developed a reputation for publishing high quality literature, including “Dhaka'r Itihaash” by Muntassir Mamoon, significant works by Selina Hossain and Syed Shamsul Haque, as well as poetry by Shamsur Rahman, Mahadev Saha, Asad Chowdhury and more.

However, Anannya has also dedicated their practice to highlighting the works of up and coming writers, informed Monirul Haque. Books on the Language Movement by MR Akhtar Mukul can be found here as well.

The late and eminent litterateur Humayun Ahmed had many books published by Anannya, including books of the Himu, Misir Ali, and Shubhro series. His brother and popular writer Mohammad Zafar Iqbal also had many books released by the publishing house.
