A Suitable Boy


Author: Vikram Seth

Genre: Literary Fiction

Publisher: Weidenfeld & Nicolson

Year: 1993

Blurb: A modern classic, this epic tale of families, romance and political intrigue never loses its power to delight and enchant readers.

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. At the same time, it is the story of India, newly independent and struggling through a time of crisis as a sixth of the world's population faces its first great general election and the chance to map its own destiny.
