R.K. Narayan Omnibus by R. K. Narayan
Book Description"Mr Sampath - The Printer of Malgudi" is the story of a businessman who adapts to the collapse of his weekly newspaper by shifting to screenplays, only to have the glamour of it all go to his head. In "The Financial Expert", a man of many hopes but few resources spends his time under a banyan tree dispensing financial advice to those willing to pay for his knowledge. In "Waiting for the Mahatma", a young drifter meets the most beautiful girl he has ever seen, an adherent of Mahatma Gandhi, and commits himself to Gandhi's Quit India campaign, a decision that will test the integrity of his ideals against the strength of his passions.
