Acquired via BookCrossing 21 Mar 2007 – BookRing

A strange, meditative, poignant little book. I hadn’t realised it was the sequel to Swami and Friends and The Bachelor of Arts, which made it all the more poignant. The usual Narayan features of the hapless narrator, capable women, a cast of secondary characters with various and unusual characters was supplemented by a supernatural – or is it? – element which was interesting.

Glad I got to read this.
