Selected Works


Since the publication of his first book of poems, Mappings (1980), Vikram Seth has demonstrated remarkable literary dexterity and imagination, writing ten books that differ distinctly in style and content. His fascinating oeuvre includes three collections of poetry, a novel-in-verse, fables, a libretto, translations of ancient Chinese poets, a travelogue, and two prose novels. Best known in the United States for Suitable Boy (1993), which at 1,349 pages holds the distinction of being the single longest novel published in the English language, Seth has now written his first conventional novel, in terms of length and narrative style. Early on, he asserted his intent to keep this novel to a traditional length, stating: "for every ten thousand words over a hundred thousand, I will chop off a digit."
Vikram Seth was born in Calcutta in 1952. His father was in the shoe business, his mother a judge. After his early education in India, he took his undergraduate degree in philosophy, politics, and economics from Oxford University, and was a graduate student at Stanford and Nanjing universities, where he studied the economic demography of China. Seth is a fascinating polymath who has been led by his literary passions on a very "wavy" career path. While at Stanford, he detoured from grad school in economics to master Chinese and ended up translating Chinese poetry. After two years at Nanjing University, Seth hitchhiked home to New Delhi via Tibet. Fluent in Chinese and garbed in the traditional blue trousers, jacket, and visored cap, he recorded his astute observations and candid conversations in

Vikram Seth - Bangladesh and England
Written on December 21st, 2005 in World People From the author of A Suitable Boy , this masterful fusion of memoir, biography and history creates an extraordinary tapestry of India, the Third Reich and the Second World War, Auschwitz and the Holocaust, Israel and Palestine, post-war Germany and 1970s Britain. Vikram Seth - Bangladesh and England A childless couple living in England—Henny, a German-Jew who fled Hitler’s Germany, and Shanti from the Raj’s India—take in their grand nephew Vikram Seth. Simon Winchester. This interview with AsiaSource was conducted while Seth was in New York for a Meet the Author program at the Asia Society on November 16, 2005. Interview conducted by Nermeen Shaikh of AsiaSource : Vikram Seth - Two Lives. In an interview to The Guardian recently you have said that each of your books has “come about because it could not not have been written.” You say that your writing has announced itself to you with an urgency you could not resist. Could you elaborate on this? Is this impulse what compelled you to begin a career in writing? In this particular case, in the case of Two Lives, I was taken by the narrative after the discovery of a set of letters that my great-aunt had written that gave the story a kind of depth, a perspective, an intimacy, and a kind of psychological and moral connection, in terms of decision-making in times of great stress, apart from its human interest, which was considerable. But as far as my three novels are concerned, in each case, there was an impulse. In one case because I had read a novel in verse, which inspired me to write my own, and that was The Golden Gate. In one case because I heard a snippet of conversation: “You too will marry a boy I choose,” which germinated the book, A Suitable Boy. And in the case of An Equal Music, despite its subject matter, its inspiration was very non-musical: just watching someone stare at the water of the Serpentine very intently and wondering what on earth his thoughts were.

The petition Hindustan Times , the New York Times Sepia Mutiny Amartya Sen has also released in statement in support.) Now, in the aftermath of that campaign, Outlook magazine has carried an interview with Seth. At the beginning of the interview the following, rather wonderful, exchange takes place: Did this law affect you in a similar way? Did it have a personal effect on your own life? Now you ask me whether this directly affected me. Yes. When I realised that I had feelings for men as well as women, at first I was worried and frightened, and there was a certain amount of Who am I? Am I a criminal? and so on. It took me a long time to come to terms with myself. Sheela Reddy honest, measured responses Q: This is something that people often snigger about: has boarding school anything to do with you being gay? Q: Are you in a relationship just now?

For the moment, and it is a long moment as there are many countries to visit, he is on extended leave from writing to promote his latest work Two Lives, a biography of his great-uncle and aunt, with whom he lived from the age of 17 while at school in England and at Oxford University. The memoir is an extraordinary story of two ordinary people from different cultures, a one-armed Indian dentist and a German Jew who married in post-war London. In telling their story, Seth reveals much of his own, with insights into his family, education, career and the enduring influence of his Uncle Shanti and Aunt Henny.

The poet and novelist, Vikram Seth, (author of The Golden Gate A Suitable Boy, An Equal Music ) has an interesting piece in The Times Literary Supplement
Seth explains his early encounter with the works of George Herbert at school studying for `A` Level English.
Many years later, by chance, the Rectory came on the market and he bought it.
He explains how the house`s associations and his earlier readings of three poems of Herbert`s (below) led him to compose a number of poems (set out in the article).
The three poems of Herbert`s referred to in the article are:

Save EMail Write to Editor It all began with a chance remark a week ago. In the midst of an interview, Vikram Seth — genre-hopper; author of the mega-selling, wriststraining 'A Suitable Boy'; litterateur who's been compared by critics to the likes of Pushkin and Tolstoy — made an observation.
"I often feel newspapers are just filling up space. Of course, I also know people who write really long books. There's too much reading, and too little thinking. And yes, sometimes, I do wonder about the priorities of newspapers."
We leapt at the opening.Would Seth like to bring out 'The Times of India' for a day, according to his priorities, we asked. What would that entail, he queried. "Oh, commission stories, look at the news list, decide what should go on the front page and how prominently it should be displayed," we responded. "For every edition of the TOI?" he enquired. Absolutely.
"And you wouldn't veto anything I wanted done?" No, we assured him.

    Re-reading ‘A Suitable Boy - Vikram Seth
    Comments  (
    Suitable Boy Vikram Seth I first read it in a very beautiful setting a summer over 3 yrs ago in a university library with a individual table in between bookshelves beside a window overlooking  the flowering bushes of mussandas.last month i got it from anothet library to home.My sister’s amazed that i carried the heavy  book to and fro to the library a journey of over an hour to re read it. Its one of the most Voluminous books in literature and i honestly doubt how many people would have read it through end to end.Its way huge.But the wonderful thing is at no point while reading do you really regret its length..cause it does not drag, its pacy and moves in every page.
