The Financial Expert by R.K. Narayan
Univ. of Chicago Press 1981

The hero of this novel - set in the fictional town of Malgudi, India - has an anxious love of money. Margayya, with his vanity, ambition, small meannesses and manoeuvring round the Gods, lives the harsh life of severe poverty. This book provides a close, sharply defined portrait of Indian culture, subtly addressing a range of specific social issues while simultaneously exploring universal themes.
R.K. Narayan was born in Madras.
