Narayan's career as a novelist and short story writer spans almost eight decades from Swami and Friends (1935) to Grandmother's Tale (1992) until his death on 13 May 2001 at the ripe age of 95. His distinctive sense of humour his trademark irony his bemused knowing overseeing perspective his rootedness in religion and family values and his inescapable capturing of the essence of Indian sensibility all have been looked at from a refreshingly new viewpoint hitherto only partly touched or left unexplored and unattempted. The Guide The Man eater of Malgudi A Tiger for Malgudi Waiting for the Mahatma and The Dark Room exploit freshly forged tools of critical analysis comparative structural neo historical feminist Bakhtinian post colonial and socio cultural and ethical. The book presents a brilliant critical study on the vast pool of literary output of R.K. Narayan. It contains lucid discussion on new dimensions in literary theory through well argued illustrative analysis of popular texts. It is a scholarly elucidation of the sociology of Hinduism as reflected in his fiction. The book is indispensable for students teachers and researchers in various fields like literary criticism Theory of literature Indian philosophy customs and thought patterns besides social anthropology and sociology. 290 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 72536
