Seth is a poet, novelist, travel writer, librettist, children's writer, and memoirist. His acclaimed first novel, "The Golden Gate," is written entirely in Onegin stanzas after the style of Alexander Pushkin's Eugene Onegin. His 1474-page novel "A Suitable Boy," an epic of Indian life set in the 1950s, won both the WH Smith Literary Award and the Commonwealth Writers' Prize. Sponsored by the Doreen B.
