Opis

For identical twins, Kate and Violet are about as unlike as two peas from the same pod can be. Except in one respect – they share a hidden gift. But after Kate inadvertently reveals their secret when they are thirteen years old, their lives are set on diverging paths.

Twenty years later Kate, a devoted wife and mother, has settled down in the suburbs to raise her two young children. Violet is single, and lives a much more flamboyant and eccentric existence. Then one day Violet ignites a media storm by predicting a major earthquake in the St Louis area where they live.

As the day Violet has announced for the earthquake draws nearer, Kate must attempt to reconcile her fraught relationship with her sister, and to face truths about herself she has long tried to deny.

***

A work of psychological genius and has a wonderful twist at the end…a literary pageturner…There’s a fizzing, daring originality to Sisterland that draws you in and takes your breath away. – Observer

Engagingly messy mixture of the comic and the sombre…a beautifully delicate way of describing both familial and conjugal love. – Guardian

Curtis Sittenfeld has a knack for capturing characters so vividly it’s uncanny…brilliantly evokes small-town Eighties adolescence…the gripping denouement is expertly carried out. – Daily Mail

Wise and empathetic, this is a book with a great sense of humour and an even bigger heart. – Glamour

Most people I know who have read anything by Curtis Sittenfeld would read anything else the woman wrote, me included…Suddenly, trivial details become exquisite insights into class, entitlement, love and your place in the world…Fans will instantly be swept along by Sittenfeld’s confident, page-turning writing and sharp eye. – The Times
