Under the Banyan Tree and Other Stories Paperback
Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series
This is an enchanting collection from India's foremost storyteller, rich in wry, warmly observed characters from every walk of Indian life - merchants, beggars, herdsmen, rogues - all of whose lives are microcosms of the human experience.
Like Nambi in the title story, Narayan has the mesmeric ability to spellbind his audience.
This he achieves with a masterful combination of economy and rhythm, creating haunting images and a variety of settings to evoke a unique paradox of reality and folklore.
