These four works add yet another dimension to the rich contribution A. K. Ramanujan has made to Indian and American letters. The books of poems are written in an extraordinary variety of modes and moods. The novella, Someone Else's Autobiography is an unusually complex story told by the fictional K.K. Ramanujan, which manages to tell us a great deal about the author's own life story.
