Read full description of the books Zwei Leben:

In »Zwei Leben« erzählt Vikram Seth zärtlich und präzise von einer wahren Liebe, die ein Jahrhundert umspannt. Mit zurückschauender Sehnsucht berichtet er von zwei Menschen, seinem Onkel Shanti und Tante Henny, die sich an der Wegkreuzung von indischer Diaspora und jüdischem Exil trafen: ein bewegendes Denkmal und erzählerisches Kunststück zugleich. »Nimm den Schwarzen nicht«, sagt Henny zu ihrer Mutter und meint den jungen Inder an der Tür. Doch Shanti, der im Berlin der dreißiger Jahre Zahnarzt werden will, bekommt das Zimmer in der Bleibtreustraße - und das wird Hennys Glück. Shanti, von den Nazis verdrängt, kann erst in London praktizieren, und dort steht 1939 plötzlich Henny an der Victoria Station - als einziger Jüdin aus dem Freundeskreis ist ihr die Flucht gelungen.

Read information about the author

Ebook Zwei Leben read Online! Vikram Seth is an Indian poet, novelist, travel writer, librettist, children's writer, biographer and memoirist.

During the course of his doctorate studies at Stanford, he did his field work in China and translated Hindi and Chinese poetry into English. He returned to Delhi via Xinjiang and Tibet which led to a travel narrative From Heaven Lake: Travels Through Sinkiang and Tibet (1983) which won the Thomas Cook Travel Book Award.

The Golden Gate: A Novel in Verse (1986) was his first novel describing the experiences of a group of friends who live in California. A Suitable Boy (1993), an epic of Indian life set in the 1950s, got him the WH Smith Literary Award and the Commonwealth Writers Prize.

His poetry includes The Humble Administrator's Garden (1985) and All You Who Sleep Tonight (1990). His Beastly Tales from Here and There (1992) is children's book consisting of ten stories in verse about animals.

In 2005, he published Two Lives, a family memoir written at the suggestion of his mother, which focuses on the lives of his great-uncle (Shanti Behari Seth) and German-Jewish great aunt (Henny Caro) who met in Berlin in the early 1930s while Shanti was a student there and with whom Seth stayed extensively on going to England at age 17 for school. As with From Heaven Lake, Two Lives contains much autobiography.

An unusually forthcoming writer whose published material is replete with un- or thinly-disguised details as to the personal lives of himself and his intimates related in a highly engaging narrative voice, Seth has said that he is somewhat perplexed that his readers often in consequence presume to an unwelcome degree of personal familiarity with him.
