old Type: Your last novel, the international best-seller A Suitable Boy , was 1,349 pagesthe longest single volume novel ever published in English. Did you purposely set out to write a shorter novel this time around?
Vikram Seth: I didn't particularly intend to write a shorter novel. However, I did realize that if I were to write another novel equally long, it would take up another decade of my life. I wasn't very keen to do that. I also reckon that publishers aren't intrinsically fond of long novels; they're difficult to convince people to read...or to review for that matter. So I hoped that the inspiration for my next novel could be curbed within reasonable length, 300 to 400 pages. I guess I'm lucky that it has. I did threaten to cut off a digit for every extra 10,000 words above 100,000. All of my fingers are intact.
BT: What was your inspiration for An Equal Music
VS: After A Suitable Boy , I didn't write anything, not even a short story. I thought to myself: I ought to start writing. But I can never force myself to write. A little over a year ago, I was walking across a park in London with a friend. In my mind's eye, I saw a man. He was tall and European, but I knew he wasn't a Londoner. I didn't know anything about his profession. Dressed against the weather, he was staring fixedly at the Serpentine at the water. The image fascinated me. And it seemed quite important to what might have been germinating in my head for a novel. I asked my friend what profession he thought this man might be, and my friend, who happens to be a musician, said 'Definitely a musician.' I thought to myself:

Vikram Seth
Born in Calcutta in 1952 to Prem Seth, a shoe company executive, and Laila Seth, a judge, Vikram Seth is the oldest of three children in the Seth family.
He was sent away to Doon school, a prestigious boarding school for boys, at the age of six. As a young student Vikram was very shy, "Incapable of looking people in the eye," he says. But what he lacked in sociability, he more than made up by excelling at his studies.
Did you know? In 1992, Vikram was invited to Doon School to give the Founder's Day speech. In his speech, Vikram confessed "I had a terrible feeling of loneliness and isolation during my six years here………….I was teased and bullied by my classmates and my seniors because of my interest in studies and reading, because of my lack of interest in games, because of my unwillingness to join gangs and groups." After passing his 'O level' exams with distinction, Vikram won a scholarship to Tonbridge School in Kent, U.K. From Kent he soon went to the prestigious Oxford University on another scholarship and earned degrees in philosophy, economics, and politics. Not content with all this, Seth went to study at the Stanford University in the U.S. for a Ph D. in Economics. He spent the next 11 years "not getting the degree", as he says. Two of those years (1980-1982) were spent in China, where Seth studied poetry and languages at the Nanjing University of China. It was while in China that Vikram realized he was "more interested in poetry than economics."

A Suitable Boy
Politics runs through the story as well, and Nehru himself appears occasionally; I have to say that for me these sections were less successful and I was tempted to skip some of the set speeches. Another minor problem at times was a certain vagueness about which language the characters were speaking. This matters, because the characters themselves make a lot of it; Lata's pompous brother Arun, for example, who is a yuppy before his time, is scornful of Haresh, Lata's husband-to-be, because his English is less than perfect (although, in a delightully ironic passage, he is eventually forced to admit that he, Arun, has never been to England while Haresh has lived and studied there). Mostly, however, Seth manages these linguistic transitions adroitly. Long though this book is, I wouldn't wish it shorter. In fact, it's so rich that when I reached the end I felt like rereading it; and I'm sure I shall. %T A Suitable Boy
