Product Description

A research scholar whose notebook reveals a surreal pig farm ...

A psychologist in search of the truth about one of his clients ...

An aspiring writer who emulates Gogol ...

The unforgettable men and women in N. Prabhakaran's stories have an uncanny ability to expose the fault lines between the real and the unreal, the normal and the mad, as they explore their own inner worlds and psychic wounds. A pioneer of the post-modern aesthetic turn, N. Prabhakaran weaves the nitty-gritty of everyday, small-town lives into his stories-all set in northern Kerala-that are steeped in folklore, nature, factional politics and the intricacies of human relationships. Brilliantly translated by Jayasree Kalathil, Diary of a Malayali Madman marks the very first time this major Indian writer's

work is available in English.
