Editorial Reviews

Christopher Wordsworth
Narayan's limits are meticulously imposed and observed but his humour and compassion come from a deep universal well, with the result that he is transformed his imaginary township of Malgudi into a bubbling parish of the world." -- The Observer

Meet the Author


R. K. Narayan (1906–2001) was one of the most prominent Indian novelists of the twentieth century. Most of his stories are set in the fictional South Indian town of Malgudi, a place that Narayan populated with numerous characters. He was the recipient of many awards for his work including the National Prize of the Indian Literary Academy, India's highest literary honor. In 1980 he was awarded the AC Benson Medal by the Royal Society of Literature, of which he was an honorary member and in 1982 he was elected an honorary member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
