Last Sunday was one of those days when you walk into the library and there are so many good books which you can't all take at the same time. Quite a catch. R.K.Narayan's A Writerly Life was the prize catch, featuring selected non-fiction from the master essayist. I have a old copy of a collection of essays by Narayan called Next Sunday, which I absolutely treasure. I think he is the best writer of essays I have ever read. The Picador Book of Cricket, an anthology of cricket writing edited by Ramchandra Guha was Book 2. Another interesting read is titled Memories of Madness: Stories of 1947, containing Train to Pakistan, Tamas and stories by Sadat Hasan Manto including, I'm sure, Toba Tek Singh.
