One of the longest novels ever published in a single volume, this story is set in post-independence, post-partition India. It sweeps through history, the caste system, love affairs, land reforms, religious strife and politics. Rich and complex, wide-ranging and moving, this book transports the reader so vividly to India.

How did Vikram Seth come to write his masterpiece, and which other writers inspired him? Which members of his own family were the models for his characters?
