Fiction • 8 hrs. • Abridged • © 2005

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.
