R.K. Narayan (Illustrated by Lavanya Naidu)

R.K. NARAYAN (1906–2001) began his writing career with Swami and Friends, and most of his work is set in the sleepy and picturesque fictional town of Malgudi. Narayan’s masterful stories are marked by irony, subtle humour, romance and artistry. LAVANYA NAIDU is an animator and illustrator by day, dog whisperer and movie enthusiast by night.
