Author: R.K Narayan
Collection of short stories depicting events unfolding in the fictional town, “Malgudi”!
Didn’t live up to my expectations.
Some stories were good, some ended abruptly.
This book is an agglomeration of short stories from his other two works:
1) An Astrologer’s Day
2) Lawley Road
But,the TV series was an agglomeration of short stories from:
1)Swamy and friends
2)vendor of sweets
3)An Astrologer’s Day
4) Lawley Road
Maybe, that’s the reason, the book didn’t live up to the hype that Girish Karnad’s TV series “Malgudi Days” had created!!
