R.K. Narayan

 

“There are writers—Tolstoy and Henry James to name two—whom we hold in awe, writers—Turgenev and Chekhov—for whom we feel a personal affection, other writers whom we respect—Conrad for example—but who hold us at a long arm’s length with their ‘courtly foreign grace.’ Narayan (whom I don’t hesitate to name in such a context) more than any of them wakes in me a spring of gratitude, for he has offered me a second home. Without him I could never have known what it is like to be Indian.”—Graham Greene

 

Swami and Friends is the first of a series of novels written by R. K. Narayan, English language novelist from India. The novel, the first book Narayan wrote, is set in British India in a town called Malgudi.
