'It's BRILLIANT. I enjoyed it hugely' Marian Keyes

*****

Two people.
Two lives.
One chance to see the same world differently.

Louis and Louise are the same person born in two different lives. One was born female, and one male.

They have the same best friends, the same red hair, the same dream of being a writer, the same excellent whistle. They both suffer one catastrophic night, with life-changing consequences.

Thirteen years later, they are both coming home . . .

A tender, insightful and timely novel about the things that bring us together - and those which separate us, from the author of Richard & Judy recommended book Together

*****

'An engaging, moving novel, at its most arresting in the pivotal scenes when she explores the personal fallout of industrial and class conflict in Louis/Louise's beleaguered hometown' Sunday Times

'A modern take told with heart' Grazia

Review:

Cohen has written an engaging, moving novel, at its most arresting in the pivotal scenes when she explores the personal fallout of industrial and class conflict in Louis/Louise's beleaguered hometown. (SUNDAY TIMES)

Book of the Month: The idea behind Louis & Louise is one of the cleverest I've seen: a baby is born on 8 September 1978 - from that point, the narrative splits, with the child growing up female in one strand and male in the other... This tender, moving, fantastically readable story is expertly handled by Julie Cohen. (GOOD HOUSEKEEPING)

Emotional and seriously powerful. (FABULOUS MAGAZINE, SUN ON SUNDAY)

Told over two, initially parallel, narratives (or, indeed, universes), this is a nuanced exploration of how the social expectations of gender can push us down certain paths. (THE INDEPENDENT)

This elegantly written novel also examines much that is universal: teen love, parent-child relations, class division and small-town prejudice. (DAILY MAIL)

In this fascinating novel, Cohen explores the paths taken by Louis and Louise, which run almost parallel until a life-changing event on the night of Lou's high school graduation. It's a poignant look at how our gender can determine the way we are treated and the knock-on effects that can have, even if all the other circumstances of our lives are exactly the same (Emerald Street)

In the hands of a less skilful author this could have been an unsubtle gimmick to make a point about gender but Julie Cohen has written a powerful and memorable story of small town secrets, family dynamics and the sense that some things are just meant to be. (SUNDAY EXPRESS)

Not often does a story remind us of what beautifully complex creatures we are. Julie Cohen has given us that rare gift (Christina Dalcher, author of VOX)

Poignant and heartfelt (PRIMA)

Tender and thought-provoking (Isabelle Broom Woman & Home)

Book Description:

A moving and thought-provoking novel from literary rising star Julie Cohen, a Richard & Judy recommended author, about one life, lived twice. How different can it be?
