Besides six collections of short stories (A Horse and Two Goats, An Astrologer's Day and Other Stories, Lawley Road, Malgudi Days, Grandmother's Tale and Under the Banyan Tree), Narayan published two travel books (My Dateless Diary and The Emerald Route), five collections of essays (Next Sunday, Reluctant Guru, A Writer's Nightmare, A Story-teller's World and Salt and Sawdust), translations of Indian epics and myths (The Ramayana, The Mahabharata and Gods, Demons, and Others, published together as The Indian Epics Retold), and a memoir, My Days. A Town Called Malgudi, The World of Malgudi, The Magic of Malgudi and Memories of Malgudi, collections of Narayan's fiction, and Malgudi Landscapes, a selection of his best writings, are available in Penguin Books.
