A Suitable Boy


The best writer of his generation. - The Times.
A quietly monumental novel . . . [Seth] has given us that unlikeliest of hybrids, a modest tour de force. - Times Literary Supplement
So vast and so amiably peopled [A Suitable Boy] is a long, sweet, sleepless pilgrimage to life. . . [The novel] covers India like a sun, warming a whole country in its historical rays . . . It is almost impossible to imagine an unswayed reader. _ Guardian
