R.K. Narayan Omnibus PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

R.K. Narayan Omnibus free pdf R. K. Narayan (1906-2001) witnessed nearly a century of change in his native India and captured it in fiction of uncommon warmth and vibrancy. "Swami and Friends" introduces us to Narayan's beloved fictional town of Malgudi, where ten-year-old Swaminathan's excitement about his country's initial stirrings for independence competes with his ardour for cricket and all other things British. "The Bachelor of Arts" is a poignant coming-of-age novel about a young man flush with first love, but whose freedom to pursue it is hindered by the fixed ideas of his traditional Hindu family. In "The Dark Room", Narayan's portrait of aggrieved domesticity, the docile and obedient Savitri, like many Malgudi women, is torn between submitting to her husband's humiliations and trying to escape them. The title character in "The English Teacher", Narayan's most autobiographical novel, searches for meaning when the death of his young wife deprives him of his greatest source of happiness.
