The essential R.K. Narayan. Forty essays, travel pieces, character sketches and short stories from India's greatest living novelist, the majority collected here for the first time.

The three sections of the book: 'The Fiction-Writer', 'Short Essays' and 'Malgudi Sketches and Stories' provide a rare glimpse into R.K. Narayan's beginnings as a writer and his evolution into a world-renowned novelist. More importantly, each essay and story is in itself a triumph of Narayan's genius as a close and perceptive observer of the small and ordinary things of life.

Finally, taken together, the pieces in this collection (on crowds, films, restaurants, clothes, cats, the English language and school-children among others) give the reader fresh insights into the distinctive aspects of the Indian South which finally achieved immortality in the fictional world of Malgudi.
