[BKARTS] The Man-eater of Malgudi



Dear List,

Always a treat to stumble upon a wonderful writer and a great book. Known to
others I confess prior ignorance of the Indian writer R.K.Narayan and his
short novel The Man-eater of Malgudi. The main character is a printer, on a small
treadle press, who maintains a small salon in his print shop. The story
telling is first rate and quite humourous. The accounts as to his printing business
I guarantee will raise more than a chuckle from most of the list.

As it is available in paperback: Penguin Twentieth Century Classics, ISBN
0-14-018548-8, you won't regret getting and reading a copy.

Enjoy,
Leonard Seastone
