This week, we are using reader questions to address some of the complex and mysterious inner-workings of string quartets. Life and Career[ edit ] Seth's former literary agent Giles Gordon recalled being interviewed by Seth for the position, "Vikram sat at one end of a long table and he began to grill us. I walked on. His sense of hurry was now evident.

If you don't, don't bother trying. He interviewed and followed many of them for months. The opera was performed for the first time in June Her choice -- Michael or family -- is only superficially explored, presented instead as now she loves him, now she doesn't. There are other, more serious problems with the novel.

Most musicians are just not that spiritual and soul-searching about their music! Melodramatic indeed. And it goes without saying that Vikram Seth knows how to tell a tale, keeping us guessing about everything from what the Quartets four-minute encore will be to what really occasioned Julias departure from Michaels life. Did Vikram Seth have the opportunity to work with a living quartet during the writing of this book? There was nothing. His characters are incredibly flat.
