When Mali coolly announces that he is abandoning school to go to America to become a writer, Jagan's fatherly feelings are thrown into still greater confusion. And when, a year or two later, Mali returns with a half-Korean, half-American wife and a grandiose scheme for marketing a novel-writing machine, Jagan is utterly at sea. He is confronted by the new world shockingly personified - a world where his cherished notions of marriage and morals seem to count for nothing.

Narayan : contemporary critical perspectivesCriticism, interpretation, etcThis collection of eighteen essays is the first major work to evaluate the contributions of India's foremost literary figure writing in English, R. K. Narayan. His fourteen novels and nine volumes of short stories are centered almost exclusively in the fictional south-Indian town, Malgudi. Narayan, who began to acquire an international reputation in the second half of this century, reveals the India of his experience by focusing on the details of the lives of the characters who live in this complex community. Representative of the general field of Narayan criticism, Contemporary Critical Essays provides a balanced assessment, but also contains new interpretations of Narayan's work that are drawn from the latest developments in literary theory, feminist and cultural studies, as well as investigations into the implications of colonization and decolonization. As a result, these essays offer fresh insights, explore new directions, and reveal the nuances of an established literary criticism+-+15888652352133ocn031606376book19950.73Pousse, MichelR.K.

NarayanCriticism, interpretation, etc863ocn716830263book20110.92Grene, NicholasR.K. NarayanCriticism, interpretation, etcThis comprehensive study of R.K. Narayan, the outstanding Indian novelist of his generation, provides an incisive analysis of the major issues of his fiction. Virtually all of his novels are set in the imaginary South Indian town of Malgudi, a solid, realistic setting for his tragi-comedies of human aberration and attainment. A key element of his fiction, including his best known novel The Guide, is the way Hindu fables and myths lie submerged beneath the surface of secular social comedy. Perhaps his greatest skill is as a storyteller who developed special styles to tell his elliptical, subtle and understated tales. His deceptively simple English and ironic outlook make him particularly accessible to Western readers and this lively and perceptive study allows a full appreciation of the depth and significance of a great Indian writer. --Book Jacket+-+1904581925833ocn015589335book19860.88Philip, David ScottPerceiving India : through the works of Nirad C.
