Udaindha Manoradhangal: Ku. Pa. Raa. padaippulagam 

This is a very short book (78 pages) consisting of about eight pieces evaluating the different dimensions of Ku. Pa. Raa as a writer and artist — edited by Perumal Murugan and based on a conference held in Salem. Very interesting pieces that will be of interest to both those who have read Ku Pa Raa and are yet to read him. I did find some of the discussions difficult to follow because of my lack of familiarity with the academic writing style in Tamil. However, the experience of reading the pieces is certainly worth the effort and some of the pieces are quite provocative too — especially the one about him as a poet! Recommended if you are interested in Tamil literature.
