Vikram Seth - An Equal Music (2nd Hand Hardback)
A powerful love story from the author of the international bestseller A Suitable Boy.
A chance sighting on a bus ; a letter which should never have been read ; a pianist with a secret that touches the heart of her music . . . An Equal Music is a book about love, about the love of a woman lost and found and lost again ; it is a book about music and how the love of music can run like a passionate fugue through a life. It is the story of Michael, of Julia, and of the love that binds them.
This is a powerful and deeply romantic tale of two gifted musicians. Michael Holme is a violinist, a member of the successful Maggiore Quartet. He has long been haunted, though, by memories of the pianist he loved and left ten years earlier, Julia McNicholl. Now Julia, married and the mother of a small child, unexpectedly reenters his life and the romance flares up once more.
Against the magical backdrop of Venice and Vienna, the two lovers confront the truth about themselves and their love, about the music that both unites and divides them, and about a devastating secret that Julia must finally reveal. With poetic, evocative writing and a brilliant portrait of the international music scene,
An Equal Music confirms Vikram Seth as one of the world's finest and most enticing writers.
