This is an auction for GODS, DEMONS AND OTHERS by R K Narayan.

"Mr Narayan gives vitality and an original viewpoint to the most ancient of legends, lacing them with his own blend of satire, pertinent explanation and thoughtful commentary."
- New York Times

"Narayan's narrative style is swift, firm, graceful, and lucid . . . thoroughly knowledgeable, skilful, entertaining. One could hardly hope for more."
- Times Literary Supplement

Amazon.com review:

"Following in the footsteps of the storytellers of his native India, R. K. Narayan has produced his own versions of tales taken from the Ramayana and the Mahabarata. Selecting stories which include the strongest characters, Narayan informs these fascinating myths with his urbane humour and graceful style."

"FIVE STARS!!! In this wonderful book R K Narayan tries to narrate some excerpts from Indian mythology. These are chosen from portions of great epics to folk lore tales. Most of these tales are usually narrated by a priest or some storyteller in a village side temple. Having listened to some of those story telling concerts I would say Narayan's book gives you the same exhilaration and joy you would experience as you listen to a live story teller in a village."
