9781857990881: A Suitable Boy

Vikram Seth's novel is at its core a love story, the tale of Lata - and her mother's attempts to find her a suitable husband, through love or through exacting maternal appraisal. Set in post-Independence India and involving the lives of four large families and those who orbit them, it is also a vast panoramic exploration of a whole continent at a crucial hour as a sixth of the world's population faces its first great General Election and the chance to map its own destiny.

'A SUITABLE BOY may prove to be the most fecund as well as the most prodigious work of the latter half of this century - perhaps even the book to restore the serious reading public's faith in the contemporary novel ... You should make time for it. It will keep you company for the rest of your life' Daniel Johnson, The Times

Review:

‘This novel, so vast and so amiably peopled, is a long, sweet, sleepless pilgrimage to life… Such writing reminds us that there are secrets beyond technique, beyond even style, which have to do with a quality of soul on the part of the writer, a giving of oneself… His novel deserves thousands of long marriages and suitable readers.’
Guardian

‘Vivid, evocative and beautifully written, A Suitable Boy casts its net far and wide across the country… Seth has a wonderful sense of place and the (fictional) city of Brahmpur is almost a character in its own right… The cast of A Suitable Boy is as vast and various as that of any 19th century novel.’
Literary Review

‘A Suitable Boy modulates unawkwardly from moments of delicate emotional and psychological accuracy to scenes of panoramic drama… it lines up with its eminent 19th century predecessors in combining depth of imagination with breadth of appeal.’
Sunday Times
