really liked it

Riuby and Rose are adult conjoined twins, and this is their 'autobiography'. All in the first person, as if written by one or the other of them. It's so good, and so moving; I had to remind myself at times that it was a novel and not a genuine autobiography. Shed a little tear at the end, too. It's not a soppy tear-jerker, just a beautifully written exploration of one unuaual corner of the human condition.
