For Raman the sign painter, life is a familiar and satisfying routine. A man of simple, rational ways, he lives with his pious aunt and prides himself on his creative work. But all that changes when he meets Daisy, a thrillingly independent young woman who wishes to bring birth control to the area. Hired to create signs for her clinics, Raman finds himself smitten by a love he cannot understand, much less avoid-and soon realizes that life isn't so routine anymore. Set in R. K. Narayan's fictional city of Malgudi, The Painter of Signs is a wry, bittersweet treasure.

This sweet, short story is from RK Narayan's iconic 'Swami and Friends', a slice of life from a simpler time. Swami has been forced to move to a different school because of his antics, and is struggling to play cricket as much as he likes. His grandmother, his coach, his headmaster all seem to be conspiring against him to ensure that he never gets to play cricket again. Swami's friends are outraged on his behalf and decide to help him out by going and talking to his headmaster themselves. Will it work? Or will poor impetuous Swami now be confronted with even more furious grownups? Find out in this lovely little snippet from RK Narayan's original Swami and Friends.

"Range of readings by Indian and international critics over a period of six decades, or from the beginnings of a critical discourse in the 1930s until the present time. The four chapters of the book offer a critical investigation into the reception of the novel genre as such and of the works of its three `founding fathers`, viz., Mulk Raj Anand, R.K. Narayan and Raja Rao. The latter chapters are supplemented by a list of the respective author`s novels, the most comprehensive critical bibliography to date and a list of critics that includes their publications dates. Following the development of both the emergence of the modern Indian novel in English since the mid-1930s and its critical evaluation, Riemenschneider illustrates the, at times controversial reaction to a `new` literary genre, as well as the national and international shifts of the critical literary discourse from the earlier close-reading approach of New Criticism to the more recent employment of postmodern and postcolonial theorems. The Indian Novel in English thus offers the reader insight into the development of a particular regional critical scene, as well as into the general critical concern with what is now referred to as postcolonial literature. No serious student of the Indian novel in English should miss this comprehensive, informative and balanced critical study."
