A good day at the library

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.
