Write Review

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

A new edition to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of this award-winning, critically acclaimed bestseller

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.
