Read full description of the books Quatuor:Peut-on manquer sa vie en un instant d'aveuglement, faute d'avoir su saisir l'amour quand il s'offrait ? Violoniste londonien, Michael ne peut oublier Julia, la pianiste connue à Vienne, où ils se produisaient ensemble. Et voilà que, des années plus tard, il aperçoit dans un autobus celle dont il avait perdu toute trace.
La retrouver, la reconquérir : tel va être désormais son but. Un désir ardent qui les ramènera à Vienne, puis à Venise... Mais n'est-il pas trop tard, et le drame intime que vit Julia peut-il être dépassé ?
En même temps qu'un déchirant roman d'amour, l'auteur d'Un garçon convenable nous donne une évocation poétique, inspirée, de l'univers de la musique.
Read information about the authorVikram Seth is an Indian poet, novelist, travel writer, librettist, children's writer, biographer and memoirist.
During the course of his doctorate studies at Stanford, he did his field work in China and translated Hindi and Chinese poetry into English. He returned to Delhi via Xinjiang and Tibet which led to a travel narrative From Heaven Lake: Travels Through Sinkiang and Tibet (1983) which won the Thomas Cook Travel Book Award.
The Golden Gate: A Novel in Verse (1986) was his first novel describing the experiences of a group of friends who live in California. A Suitable Boy (1993), an epic of Indian life set in the 1950s, got him the WH Smith Literary Award and the Commonwealth Writers Prize.
His poetry includes The Humble Administrator's Garden (1985) and All You Who Sleep Tonight (1990). His Beastly Tales from Here and There (1992) is children's book consisting of ten stories in verse about animals.
In 2005, he published Two Lives, a family memoir written at the suggestion of his mother, which focuses on the lives of his great-uncle (Shanti Behari Seth) and German-Jewish great aunt (Henny Caro) who met in Berlin in the early 1930s while Shanti was a student there and with whom Seth stayed extensively on going to England at age 17 for school. As with From Heaven Lake, Two Lives contains much autobiography.
An unusually forthcoming writer whose published material is replete with un- or thinly-disguised details as to the personal lives of himself and his intimates related in a highly engaging narrative voice, Seth has said that he is somewhat perplexed that his readers often in consequence presume to an unwelcome degree of personal familiarity with him.
