The Man-eater of Malgudi, Paperback

The Man-eater of Malgudi Paperback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series



This is the story of Nataraj, who earns his living as a printer in the little world of Malgudi, an imaginary town in South India.

Nataraj and his close friends, a poet and a journalist, find their congenial days disturbed when Vasu, a powerful taxidermist, moves in with his stuffed hyenas and pythons, and brings his dancing-women up the printer's private stairs.

When Vasu, in search of larger game, threatens the life of a temple elephant that Nataraj has befriended, complications ensue that are both laughable and tragic.
