"Saul Diskin's extraordinary memoir is rich with unique and wonderful intimacy-the intimacy of twinship. For me this made that closest of bonds come alive in a way no other book I've read has succeeded in doing. Diskin makes one feel like a twin, see the world through a twin's eyes, suffer with him in a way that is at times almost unbearably close and poignant. One becomes immersed in the life and death struggle. The medical detail is wonderfully well-done, as are all the relationships. The peculiar and overwhelming nature of twinship is brought out in a way that's both uncannily spirited and wholly down-to-earth; completely unsentimental. The reader participates at every point and on every page in an intimacy that he knows only death can end."

-JOHN BAYLEY, author of Elegy for Iris

"What is it like to lose your mirror-image, your other half, your secret sharer? The End of the Twins is an arresting memoir that evokes the mysteries of twinship and the irrevocability of loss."

-ERICA JONG, author of Fear of Flying and Becoming Light

"A moving account of a unique bereavement from which we can all learn about love and loss."

-HAROLD S. KUSHNER, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People
