Publisher Description

Four gems, with new introductions, mark acclaimed Indian writer R. K. Narayan's centennial

Introducing this collection of stories, R. K. Narayan describes how in India "the writer has only to look out of the window to pick up a character and thereby a story." Composed of powerful, magical portraits of all kinds of people, and comprising stories written over almost forty years, Malgudi Days presents Narayan's imaginary city in full color, revealing the essence of India and of human experience. This edition includes an introduction by Pulitzer Prize- winning author Jhumpa Lahiri.

Customer Reviews

Dr. Rajee ,

Excellent Reading

Read this book during my college days. The book is about a naughty boy's childhood adventure. Full of humor and every one can relate to him wherever they are from. It was also made into a television series in India but the book is better. Excellent reading for all ages.
