Is there a moment, so pliant, that we can nudge it towards any future we desire?
Sometimes I believe that there is such a moment. In a lifetime, once.

In an unnamed nation that's about to rupture, Priyamvada (Poppy), a Hindu and Tariq, a Muslim are in love. In a few hours, Tariq intends to propose; Poppy intends to say yes. Both assume that they'll fend off political blowback. For, surely, their privilege will protect them.

But will it? Will Poppy and Tariq sustain a love so wholesome, so cossetted, that it remains impervious to a dystopian state? Or will the two be rent apart by chance and circumstance? What will their lives look like as they plunge into a brave new future, together or apart?

Written in alternating chapters, Like Being Alive Twice trails fact and possibility―the tale as-it-was and the tale as-it-could-have-been-if-only―arranging and rearranging, tweaking and nudging; hoping to find a lasting peace in one or the other story; hoping, above all else, that such peace will prevail over murderous times.

Politically urgent, stylistically intrepid, and relentless in its commitment to scrutinizing love, loss and the language of privilege, Like Being Alive Twice tells of the frantic pursuit of life piled upon life, even as a bloodied world closes in.

Is there a single moment, malleable enough, that we can steer towards any desired future? There are times when I am convinced that such a moment exists. Once in a lifetime. In a nameless country on the brink of chaos, Priyamvada (Poppy), a Hindu, and Tariq, a Muslim, find themselves in love. Tariq plans to propose within a few hours, and Poppy intends to accept. They both assume they are immune to the political repercussions. After all, they are privileged. But will that be enough? Will Poppy and Tariq's love withstand the turmoil and remain untarnished in a dystopian society? Or will they be torn apart by chance or circumstance? How will their future unfold, together or apart, as they embark on an uncertain tomorrow? Alternating between fact and possibility, Like Being Alive Twice explores two versions of the story, each one rearranged and refined, searching for a sense of lasting peace
