Vikram Seth's novel is, at its core, a love story: Lata and her mother, Mrs. Rupa Mehra, are both trying to find -- through love or through exacting maternal appraisal -- a suitable boy for Lata to marry. Set in the early 1950s, in an India newly independent and struggling through a time of crisis, A Suitable Boy takes us into the richly imagined world of four large extended families and spins a compulsively readable tale of their lives and loves. A sweeping panoramic portrait of a complex, multiethnic society in flux, A Suitable Boy remains the story of ordinary people caught up in a web of love and ambition, humor and sadness, prejudice and reconciliation, the most delicate social etiquette and the most appalling violence.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Vikram SethPublisher: Harper PerennialPublished: 10/04/2005ISBN: 9780060786526Pages: 1474Weight: 2.35lbsSize: 7.94h x 5.42w x 2.45dReview Citations: Entertainment Weekly 07/05/2013 pg. 98Entertainment Weekly 08/22/2014 pg. 113
