The Man-Eater of Malgudi by R. K. NarayanA better, more developed book that The Bachelor of Arts. Narayan is representing a different sense of self, and so when the protagonist does “what is right” and the villain did “what is wrong,” the qualities that normally slot into those categories in books I read were all jumbled up. I found the mix excruciating: I was genuinely uncomfortable reading this book. Which is a good thing.
