About this title

Synopsis:

Another brilliant, original and moving novel from the author of The Time Traveler’s Wife.

Julia and Valentina Poole are normal American teenagers — normal, at least, for identical “mirror” twins who have no interest in college or jobs or possibly anything outside their cozy suburban home. But everything changes when they receive notice that an aunt whom they didn’t know existed has died and left them her amazing flat in a building by Highgate Cemetery in London. They feel that at last their own lives can begin ... but they have no idea that they’ve been summoned into a tangle of fraying lives, from the OCD-suffering crossword setter who lives above them to their aunt’s mysterious and elusive lover who lives below them, and even to their aunt herself, who never got over her estrangement from the mother of the girls — her own twin — and who can’t even seem to quite leave her flat....

Review:

"Dark and delicious" (Tom Adair Scotsman)

"What is really satisfying about this novel, like The Time Traveler's Wife, is its depiction of relationships: the process of grief, the transforming power of love" (Daily Telegraph)

"An original, outrageous, and thoroughly enjoyable ghost story" (Independent)

"There may be ghosts, but it's the human stories that glitter" (Elle)

"A rich, involving novel" (The Times)

"About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.
