Read full description of the books:
Chandran frequenta l'ultimo anno di college, barcamenandosi fra lo studio e l'associazione di storia di cui è segretario, e senza un'idea di quel che farà dopo la laurea. Durante una delle sue passeggiate al fiume s'innamora perdutamente di una ragazza e annuncia di volerla sposare, pur non avendole mai nemmeno parlato. Secondo l'astrologo di famiglia però il matrimonio non è ben visto dalle stelle, e Chandran, disperato, si allontana da casa. Dopo nemmeno un giorno deciderà di vivere come un sanyasi, un asceta, per diversi mesi, durante i quali non darà più notizie di sé spaventando a morte i genitori.

Read information about the authorR. K. Narayan is among the best known and most widely read Indian novelists who wrote in English.
R.K. Narayan was born in Madras, South India, in 1906, and educated there and at Maharaja's College in Mysore. His first novel, Swami and Friends and its successor, The Bachelor of Arts, are both set in the enchanting fictional territory of Malgudi and are only two out of the twelve novels he based there. In 1958 Narayan's work The Guide won him the National Prize of the Indian Literary Academy, his country's highest literary honor.
In addition to his novels, Narayan has authored five collections of short stories, including A Horse and Two Goats, Malguidi Days, and Under the Banyan Tree, two travel books, two volumes of essays, a volume of memoirs, and the re-told legends Gods, Demons and Others, The Ramayana, and the Mahabharata. In 1980 he was awarded the A.C. Benson Medal by the Royal Society of Literature and in 1982 he was made an Honorary Member of the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters.
Most of Narayan's work, starting with his first novel Swami and Friends (1935), captures many Indian traits while retaining a unique identity of its own. He was sometimes compared to the American writer William Faulkner, whose novels were also grounded in a compassionate humanism and celebrated the humour and energy of ordinary life.
Narayan who lived till age of ninety-four, died in 2001. He wrote for more than fifty years, and published until he was eighty seven. He wrote fourteen novels, five volumes of short stories, a number of travelogues and collections of non-fiction, condensed versions of Indian epics in English, and the memoir My Days.
