My Life as an Identical Twin and What I've Learned About Everyone's Struggle to Be Singular

DUBBE Award Twins have always been fascinating, even before the miracle of modern science and fertility drugs made them almost ubiquitous. In this memoir that is also a reported essay, former 60 Minutes producer Pogrebin looks at her own experiences as an identical twin—her sister, Robin, is a New York Times reporter—and those of others; she also interviews what seems like almost every twin expert in the world. How is a twin’s experience of childhood and life different from that of mere singletons? This book about what it means to be a duplicate is smart and revealing and wise—and, well, singular.”  – Sara Nelson, The Daily Beast 9/7/09
