Writer. Mother. Wife. New Yorker. Abigail Pogrebin is many things, but the one that has defined her most profoundly is "identical twin." Pogrebin's relationship with her sister---both as children, when they were inseparable, and today, when she longs for that uncomplicated intimacy---inspired her to examine the phenomenon of twinship, to learn how other identical pairs regard their doubleness and what experts are learning about how DNA impacts our sense of identity and shapes our lives.

This is a fascinating investigation into what it means to be a twin, written by a twin. It could be useful for twins and people with twins in their lives.
Author Abigail Pogrebin speaks with scientists, parenting experts, and all the twins she can find in an attempt to determine how being a twin impacts identity and emotional health. She intentionally infuses the book with her own personal perspective as she explains the emotional impact of the ideas presented and the insight they offer in to her relationship with her identical twin sister.
