Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"What a remarkable first novel! Darin Strauss immerses us in the turbulent lives of the historic Siamese twins Chang and Eng with consummate skill, intelligence, and symphathy. Along with Barbara Gowdy's The White Bone, this is one of the most riskily imagined and successfully realized novels I've read in years." Joyce Carol Oates

Synopsis:

In this sublimely moving story of one of the 19th century's most fabled human oddities, Strauss rescues the original Siamese twins, Chang and Eng Bunker, from the sideshow of history, drawing from their extraordinary conjoined lives a first novel of exceptional beauty.
