VIKRAM SETH AT WORK ON ‘A SUITABLE GIRL’, FOR 2013

Vikram Seth has told the world he is writing a new novel, and it turns out to be A SUITABLE GIRL, slated for publication in 2013 by Penguin (Hamish Hamilton) in India, the UK and Canada and conceived as what he calls a ‘jump sequel’ to his celebrated epic A SUITABLE BOY (1993). It will feature Lata, the heroine of the earlier novel and 19 at the time, now a grandmother and seeking the right match for her grandson.
