Book Description Prentice Hall,, New York, 1986. Hard Cover. 230 pges, 8 plates, cloth, dj, very good. From the dj, 'This is an extraordinary story of identical twin girls, June and Jennifer Gibbons, in a state of irreconciliable battle with themselves and the world. Now in their twenties, from early childhood they refused to speak to any adult. Instead, they developed an elaborate fantasy life that was based on dolls (represenations of themselves that they ritually loved and killed), diaries, poems, stories, novels and Bronte-like miniature books. They have written almost a million words recording every detail of their emotions - their passionate struggle for identity and their conflicting desires for escape form and union with each other. From their self-imposed isolation they ventured into sprees of drug-taking, sex and arson, for which they were ultimately sent to Broadmoore - Britain's notorious hospital for for the criminally insane. There they are still baffling psychiatrists.'. Seller Inventory # 12178
