R. K. Narayan (1906–2001), born and educated in India, was the author of fourteen novels, numerous short stories and essays, a memoir, and three retold myths. His work, championed by Graham Greene, who became a close friend, was often compared to that of Dickens, Chekhov, Faulkner, and Flannery O'Connor, among others. October 10, 2006, is the centennial of Narayan's birth.
Jhumpa Lahiri won the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for fiction for her debut collection of stories, Interpreter of Maladies, and is the author of The Namesake.
