If you have a special place for the author of The Vendor of Sweets, RK Narayan, then the below by Alexander McCall Smith in Today's UK Guardian is for you. An excerpt -

Narayan is one of those novelists who commands universal affection. He led a relatively simple, family-oriented life, and he died more or less where he began, a member of the same community which he so lovingly recorded in his novels. And when he died, a whole world came to an end - the world of Malgudi, the town he created and peopled with a cast of characters who remain utterly memorable.

Read the rest here.
