I am currently reading the book "Brigadier Kathakal" by Malayattoor Ramakrishnan. There are 33 stories. Very interesting and humorous. I always enjoyed reading Malayattor's works. I have read his novels "Aaram Viral" , "Nettor Madhom", "Verukal" and enjoyed all of them. I feel "Yakshi" is his best novel. His memoirs, called "Ormakalude Album" is another good one I have read.

He is one of the few writers in Malayalam who have developed their own styles of writing so that we can make out from a paragraph who wrote it, the other few such writers being Basheer, Karoor, Uroob, SK Pottekkat, UA Khadar, VKN, KL Mohana Varma, Madhavikkutty, M Mukundan and MT. Madhavikkutty and KLM together wrote a novel called "Amavasi" (A junk one) in which we can clearly make out who wrote which part.
