Two Lives

by Vikram Seth - £12.99  Abacus (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780349117980 | ISBN 10: 0349117985

Two Lives is the story of a century and of a love affair across a racial devide. It tells of the extraordinary lives of Vikram Seth's great-uncle Shanti, brought up in India and sent to Berlin in the 1930s to study, and of his great-aunt Henny, whose German-Jewish family took Shanti in as a lodger. What follows is an astonishing tapestry of India, the Third Reich and the Second World War, Auschwitz and the Holocaust, Isreal and Palestine, Post-war Germany and modern Britian.
