Summary
A collection of photographs and essays provides a journey into the secret world of twins with profiles of thirty-eight sets of twins who speak about their relationships (view table of contents)
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Twins . . . the very word evokes a sense of awe and curiosity.  Twins inhabit spaces unknown, unimaginable to most of us.  At a time when multiple births are becoming more and more common, the wondrous spell of twins remains, as does our fascination with a relationship like no other.  Now, in a magnificent collection of photographs and original essays, authors Debra and Lisa Ganz, the well-known owners of Twins restaurant, provide a rare journey into the secret world of twins.

In a series of fascinating profiles, 38 sets of twins speak about their relationships while stunning photographs illuminate the depth of their bonds.  Meet the Paul twins, so different yet so alike:  Alexandra, former star of the TV series Baywatch, and her "soulmate," sister Caroline, a firefighter and critically acclaimed author. . . NFL football players Ronde and Tiki Barber, who struggle with separation when they are drafted by rival teams . . . 94-year-old Charles and Eugene Morgenthau, loving lifelong companions whose memories are richer for having been experienced together. . . 18-year-old Carrie and Corinne Badach, who, unlike so many teenagers struggling to be different, glory in being the same.

From twin toddlers to twin clowns, from twin psychics to twin undertakers to a family with an amazing three generations of twins, this remarkable volume is a rich, evocative tribute to one of life's most powerful, intimate, and mysterious relationships.
