The Guide.

R K Narayan



More by chance than skill, he seduces her away from her husband, a lonely writer who is obsessed with local rock-carvings, and transforms her into a celebrity courted by wealthy and influential dignitaries wherever she performs.

Raju makes a loses a fortune, finds himself in jail, and -- through a series of hilarious, ironic circumstances -- becomes one of India's great holy men. The history of his success and unexpected fame has all the excitement of a suspense story, told with Narayan's customary tolerance and delightful humor. At the same time it raises many profound and disturbing questions.
