From being tormented by gamblers convinced they see lucky numbers concealed in his cartoons to being mistaken for a Mexican and debarred from attending an invitation dinner on Park Avenue because he is carrying a raincoat to being charged with importing obscene literature into the country because a friend has sent him a copy of Playboy, R.K. Laxman s experiences could rival the most uncanny adventures of his most enduring creation, the Common Man. In The Tunnel of Time Laxman narrates the story of his life with the same acerbic wit, keen sense of humour and the satirist s ability to take a whimsical, cockeyed look at just about anything under the sun that we are so familiar with.



Author Bio: R.K. Laxman began cartooning for the Free Press Journal in 1947. Six months later he joined the Times of India as staff cartoonist, where he enjoyed a prolific career over fifty years and created his most famous character, the Common Man. He wrote and published numerous short stories, essays and travel articles as well as three works of fiction and his autobiography. R.K. Laxman passed away in Pune on 26 January 2015. He was 93.
