A Suitable Boy

from the manufacturer

A special limited edition of nine classic novels produced to coincide with Weidenfeld and Nicolsons 60th anniversary. Designed by the award-winning advertising agency Fallon with special endpapers commissioned from ground-breaking artists. The endpapers for this title have been designed by Yehrin Tong. Vikram Seths novel is at its core a love story, the tale of Lata - and her mothers attempts to find her a suitable husband, through love or through exacting maternal appraisal. Set in post-Independence India and involving the lives of four large families and those who orbit them, it is also a vast panoramic exploration of a whole continent at a crucial hour as a sixth of the worlds population faces its first great General Election and the chance to map its own destiny. A SUITABLE BOY may prove to be the most fecund as well as the most prodigious work of the latter half of this century - perhaps even the book to restore the serious reading publics faith in the contemporary novel . . . You should make time for it. It will keep you company for the rest of your life Daniel Johnson, The Times
