About the Book: The Golden Gate A brilliantly achieved novel written in verse. No more to say. They change. Unsleeping, On the same bed they lie apart (What terrifying miles), each keeping, Unshared, his bitterness of heart, The longing each feels for the other, Their unburnt love. Perhaps another Who knows attempt by Phil to touch His shivering friend Is it too much To ask of him? could still unite them; But obdurate now, he wont plead, Demean his pride, reveal his need . . . A hundred reasons why recite them? Ed falls asleep at last, but Phil, At two, at three, is wakeful still. Set in the 1980s in the affluence and sunshine of Californias Silicon Valley, it is an exuberant and witty story of twenty-somethings looking for love, pleasure and the meaning of life. About the Author: Vikram Seth Vikram Seth is the acclaimed author of three novels including The Golden Gate and A Suitable Boy. He has also written five books of poetry, a libretto and two highly regarded works of non fiction. Reviews 'At once a bittersweet love story, a wickedly funny novel of manners and an unsentimental meditation on mortality and the nuclear abyss. Always witty--and still profound--the book paints a truthful picture of our dreadful, comic times.'- Vanity Fair ? It outshines in brilliance anything that I have seen in half-a-century of star-spotting ?c Seth has the stuff that Nobel laureates are made of.- Khushwant Singh The great Californian novel.- Gore Vidal
