Four Strokes of Luck

Perumal Murugan

Translated by Nandini Krishnan

Kumaresan, who gets a new job working in a shack near a bypass road, is crazy about books. Amma pines for an old buffalo her family had sold. Murugesu isn’t on talking terms with his father and doesn’t want to get married. The stories in this collection explore the characters’ families, loneliness and loves with humour and liveliness.
