These co-authors take you on a captivating journey into the complex relationship between these twin brothers. As children the twins share essentially all lived experiences and into adulthood the pattern perpetuates. They grow up to become esteemed gynecologists and share the successes of their work. What becomes evident however, is their marked intra-psychical differences as one demonstrates dominant and aggressive traits while the other twin, highly sensitive and submissive traits. Both end up in a downward spiral as they can not function outside of their powerful psychological and biological connection. These authours write with a style that goes deep causing you to lift your taboos for the moment! They address the grey and very human factors within the characters that might on the outside only be labelled as good and evil. One identifies with the entrapment of the twin whose painful innocence and sensitivity leads us to forgive his inadequacies and make him the hero. One desperately hopes he can break free from his relentlessly, over-bearing brother.
