Fellow Brooklyn-ite and author Marcy Dermansky’s first novel has finally hit the store shelves. Her debut novel is about an identical pair of twin sisters who live in New Jersey, their dysfunctional family, and the pains of growing up.
Marcy was kind enough to mail me an signed copy of “Twins” a few weeks ago after I told her I was an identical twin and would love to review it from a twin’s perspective (Marcy is not a twin). I blew through the book in about 4 days and can happily say it was a fine read. In numerous places in the book, Marcy absolutely nails what it is like to be a twin; the feelings and emotions that bind us to our “other half” for our entire lives.
