One of his most popular works is his autobiography Vanavasam, which means "exile" in Tamil. It is a candid and honest account of his life as a poet, a writer, and a political activist. He wrote it in two parts: the first part was published in 1968 and the second part in 2008, after his death. The second part of Vanavasam covers the period from 1964 to 1981, when he left the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) party and joined the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) party, led by M.G. Ramachandran (MGR).

In this part of his autobiography, Kannadasan reveals the reasons behind his political shift and his disillusionment with the DMK leadership, especially with C.N. Annadurai and M. Karunanidhi. He also narrates his personal struggles with alcoholism, health issues, family problems, and financial troubles. He also shares his views on various social and cultural issues, such as caste, religion, cinema, literature, and music. He also reflects on his achievements and failures, his joys and sorrows, his hopes and regrets.

Vanavasam 2 is a valuable document of Tamil history and culture, as well as a compelling portrait of a complex and controversial personality. It is a testimony of Kannadasan's courage, honesty, and humility. It is also a tribute to his love for Tamil language and literature. It is a book that every Tamil reader should read and cherish.
