Vikram Seth is an Indian novelist, poet, and travel writer, best known for his epic novel ˜A Suitably Boy'. He has been in the field of writing for more than three decades and is regarded as one of the most influential writers of the modern era. Vikram Seth was born in Kolkata, India and studied at some of the best schools in the country before going to England for higher studies. He graduated from Corpus Christi College, Oxford and did his master's in economics from Stanford University, U.S.A. before embarking on a literary career. His first book, a collection of poems, titled ˜Mappings' did not get much attention but he came into attention with his second book ˜From Heaven Lake' which chronicled his journey from China to India. The novel ˜The Golden Gate' published in 1986 made him one of the most highly acclaimed novelists of his time and the book won him plenty of accolade from readers as well as critics. However, it was his novel ˜A Suitable Boy' that really catapulted him into the league of the most well known novelists of his time and remains his most famous work. The novel is one of the longest novels written in the English language and is regarded as a modern classic due to the range of topics that it touched upon.
Lillian Hellman is regarded as one of the most important American playwrights. She also penned screenplays of many films. Her career began when she became a reader with MGM. Writer Dashiell Hammet became her companion and critic, and encouraged her writings. While on a visit to Germany, she got her first taste of the anti-Semitic policy of the Nazi party. Some of her works, the plays, ˜Watch on the Rhine' and ˜The Searching Wind', and her screen play for ˜The North Star', reflected her anti-Fascist stance. In her country, she was viewed with suspicion for her admiration for Communist causes. Post WWII, America was gripped by an anti-communist hysteria. She had been a member of the Communist Party, but had become disillusioned by its functioning. Despite being boycotted by the film industry, she never divulged the names of fellow Communists, and found it hard to meet financial commitments. Her successful plays include ˜The Children's Hour', ˜The Little Foxes', ˜The Autumn Garden', ˜The Lark', and ˜Toys in the Attic'. She wrote about lesbianism when it was still taboo, and did not believe in the institution of marriage. The three volumes of her memoirs that she published were well-received. She is remembered as someone who was much ahead of her times.
