A Suitable Boy
A NovelBook - 2005
Vikram Seth's novel is, at its core, a love story: the tale of Lela's -- and her mother's -- attempts to find a suitable boy 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. Already a number one bestseller, this celebrated novel is now brought to life by the author himself in nearly six hours of listening pleasure.
