Description

A powerful love story from the author of the international bestseller A SUITABLE BOY

A chance sighting on a bus; a letter which should never have been read; a pianist with a secret that touches the heart of her music . . . AN EQUAL MUSIC is a book about love, about the love of a woman lost and found and lost again; it is a book about music and how the love of music can run like a passionate fugue through a life. It is the story of Michael, of Julia, and of the love that binds them.

'A novel that can stand being reread and reread, but the first time round is an emotional cliffhanger ... secure a copy for yourself, settle down, and prepare for the unforgettable' Sunday Times

Review quote

"Vikram Seth's accomplishment in bringing not only these characters so fully to life, but the rich ambience of the music as well--so difficult to render in words--is something of a miracle."--Arthur Golden, author of Memoirs of a Geisha Praise for A Suitable Boy: "Surrender to this strange, beguiling world and be swept away on the wings of story. . . . It is difficult to imagine that many contemporary writers could give us a novel that provides so much deep satisfaction."--Washington Post Book World
