overview - Ruskin Bond's Book of Humour
A delectable offering from a writer who not only knows how to make us laugh but also knows how to laugh at himself .Playful tigers, ‘ghosts’, elephants, crows and old favourites like Uncle Ken, Miss Bun, the author’s slightly eccentric grandfather and Bond himself weave in and out of the pages of this wildly eclectic, thoroughly delightful and absolutely irresistible anthology featuring previously unpublished pieces like ‘Respect Your Breakfast’ and ‘Uncle Ken Goes to Sea’ as well as beloved classics from Bond’s books.
Marked by the signature charm and subtle wit of one of India’s best-loved writers, Ruskin Bond’s Book of Humour, will make even the hardened among us crack a smile.
About the Author
Ruskin Bond, born 19 May 1934, is an Indian author of British descent. He is considered to be an icon among Indian writers and children's authors and a top novelist.In 1992 he received the Sahitya Akademi award for English writing, for his short stories collection, "Our Trees Still Grow in Dehra", by the Sahitya Academy, India's National Academy of Literature in India. He was awarded the Padma Shri in 1999 for contributions to children's literature. He now lives with his adopted family in Landour near Mussoorie.
His father was with the Royal Air Force during stay in "India". He had one sister and brother, Ellen and William Bond. When the writer was four years old, his mother separated from his father and married a Punjabi-Hindu, Mr. Hari, who himself had been married once.When he was ten years old Ruskin went to his grandmothers in Dehradun (he called her the "Culcata Granny") because of his father's sudden death due to frequent bouts of malaria and jaundice.After his High School education in Shimla he spent four years in England. In London he started writing his first novel, The Room on the Roof, the semi-autobiographical story of the orphaned Anglo-Indian boy Rusty. Bond used the advance money which he got for this book to pay the sea passage to Bombay. He worked for some years as a journalist in Delhi and Dehradun. Since 1963 he has lived as a freelance writer in Mussoorie, a town in the Himalayan foothills.
