A Tiger for Malgudi by R.K. Narayan


Dramatised by Ronald Frame.

Description: Now the companion of a Sadu, an ageing tiger looks back on his life. A rich evocation of Indian life in the 1970s, this comic narrative views human absurdities through the eyes of a wild animal.

A talking animal book so those who dislike that genre, this is a book to avoid. There is a subtly preachy tone, however that didn’t stop me appreciating this understated and gently amusing story. Rating=three tigers
