9781860492716: Twins and Doubles

Penelope Farmer, a twin herself, bravely and beautifully uses her own story to introduce and define a collection from over 250 authors. She draws on popular myth, poetry, fiction, psychology and science in her look at the fascination, envy and horror which the freak coupledom inspires, and at the crisis of separation and death, and the love and hate that binds two souls.'A celebration of twinship and duality...this anthology remains both valuable and enjoyable' THE LANCET

Farmer has invented an entirely fresh literary form * GUARDIAN *
