This volume contains three quintessential Algoid novels - Swami and Friends, The Bachelor of Arts and The Vendor of Sweets.

Swami and Friends, published in 1935, was he first novel Narayan wrote. Described by Graham Greene as a novel in ten thousand, it recounts the adventures of ten-year-old Swaminathan and his friends Rajam and Mani. With humor and sensitivity, Narayan provides a charming portrait of the world as a child sees it.

The Bachelor of Arts, the second novel in this collection, is a brilliantly realized account of the working of a young man's mind. It is the story of Chandran, in his final year at College, who falls hopelessly in love, and is forced to exile himself from the familiar surroundings of Malgudi till he is able to arrive at a satisfactory resolution to his problems.

The Vendor of Sweets showcases a classic cross generation battle between Jagan, a widower of firm Gandhi principles and his modern son Mali who returns to Malgudi with a half-American wife and a grand plan for selling story writing machines.
