Widely acclaimed as one of the world's greatest living writers, Vikram Seth -- author of the international bestseller A Suitable Boy -- tells the heartrending true story of a friendship, a marriage, and a century. Weaving together the strands of two extraordinary lives -- Shanti Behari Seth, an immigrant from India who came to Berlin to study in the 1930s, and Helga Gerda Caro, the young German Jewish woman he befriended and later married -- Two Lives is both a history of a violent era seen through the eyes of two survivors and an intimate, unforgettable portrait of a complex, abiding love.

In this remarkable audiobook, Vikram Seth presents the lives of his uncle, a one-armed Hindu dentist working in London, and his aunt, a Jew forced to flee her native Germany prior to WWII. Using a clear, direct writing style, Seth blends biography, memoir, history, and travel. The result is a glimpse of what philosopher Martin Buber described as the "I and Thou"--the ability to simultaneously see people within the world and the world within people. The story is made even more vibrant by this wonderful audiobook production in which the author reads his own words and uses narrators Eve Karpf, Tim Bentick, and Vincent Ebrahim to voice the words of the book's characters.
