Overview

Twins in Society: Parents, Bodies, Space and Talk by K. Bacon

This book explores what it means to be a twin and to what extent twins can shape or 'escape' their identities as twins. It investigates how social expectations about twins shape twins' lives and how twins utilize their bodies, space and talk to actively display and perform their own identities.
