Now in paper back edition, An Equal Music is a story both intricate and intimate, rich with music, art, humour and emotion

On one level, An Equal Music is a story about love; the love of a woman lost and found and lost again. A change sighting on a London bus, a letter that should never have been read, a pianist with a secret that touches the heart of her music: from a multiplicity of details, Vikram Seth creates, once again, a living, breathing world that enchants and grips the reader.

This is also a book about music and about how the love of music can run like a passionate theme through a life. Above all, it is a book to savour and re-read.


Vikram Seth has created new territory for Indian authors writing in English. An Equal Music is quite fascinating. It’s technically brilliant.
-Vikram Chandra,
author of Red Earth and Pouring Rain and Love and Longing in Bombay

Where An Equal Music pleases most is in the ravishing refinement of its technique, its sure placing of scenes, and the unerring truth of its portrayal of a small, enclosed social world… A virtuoso performance.
-The Spectator

Seth has written a vibrant, passion-filled tale.

Well-written, carefully crafted, concisely researched, highly allusive.
-The Hindu

An Equal Music joins the genre of great fiction.
