Malgudi Days by R. K. Narayan
Book DescriptionIntroducing 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'. "Malgudi Days" is the marvellous result. Here, Narayan portrays an astrologer, a snake-charmer, a postman, a vendor of pies and chappatis - all kinds of people, drawn in full colour and endearing domestic detail. And under his magician's touch the whole imaginary city of Malgudi springs to life, revealing the essence of India and of human experience.

Books By Author R. K. Narayan
Ramayana, Paperback (November 2006)
"The Ramayana" is the greatest of Indian epics - and one of the world's supreme masterpieces of storytelling. Telling the story, this work suggests that it can be enjoyed for its psychological insight, its spiritual depth and its wisdom - or as a tale of abduction, battle and courtship played out in a universe with heroes, deities and demons.
Painter of Signs, Paperback (November 2006)
Presents a story in which love gets in the way of progress when Raman, a sign painter, meets the thrillingly independent Daisy, who wishes to bring birth control to the city of Malgudi.
Guide, Paperback (November 2006)
Raju's first stop after his release from prison is the barber's shop. Then he decides to take refuge in an abandoned temple. Raju used to be India's most corrupt tourist guide, but now a peasant mistakes him for a holy man. Gradually he begins to play the part. He succeeds so well that God himself intervenes to put Raju's new holiness to the test.
