About Vikram Seth

Vikram Seth - The Golden Gate

Vikram Seth's previous books include three poetry collections, a libretto, the travel memoir From Heaven Lake: Travels Through Sinkiang and Tibet, and two novels, The Golden Gate (a novel in verse) and A Suitable Boy. Born in Calcutta, Seth has lived in China, California, England, and India.


"At once a bittersweet love story, a wickedly funny novel of manners and an unsentimental meditation on mortality and the nuclear abyss. Always witty--and still profound--the book paints a truthful picture of our dreadful, comic times."
--Vanity Fair

"A splendid achievement, equally convincing in its exhilaration and its sadness."
--The New York Times

"The great California novel has been written in verse (and why not?): The Golden Gate gives great joy."
--Gore Vidal
