About the Author:

Rasipuram Krishnaswami Iyer Narayanaswami was one of India s best known writers, teachers, and reporters.

Some of his best loved works are Swami And Friends, The Financial Expert, The Man-Eater Of Malgudi, The Vendor Of Sweets, The Bachelor Of Arts, The Guide, The Dark Room, and Mr. Sampath.

Rightly regarded as a painter of words, Narayan s works were loved for his simple, descriptive, and unpretentious narratives. Most of his writing was a portrayal of everyday Indian life, focusing on the common man. Realism and humour are the other key elements of his books.

Born in Chennai, Narayan completed his schooling there and in Mysore. He got his bachelor s degree from Maharaja College of Mysore. Narayan is the recipient of popular awards like the Padma Vibhushan and the Sahitya Akademi Award. He was also conferred Honorary Doctorates by the University of Mysore, Delhi University, and the University of Leeds. Many of his books have been adapted into into movies and series. He was married to Rajam and had a daughter Hema.
