Publisher's Summary

An engrossing, timely, and contemporary novel about the bonds between twins, about sexuality and gender fluidity, and about the messy complexities of modern family life - the much-anticipated new novel, the first in more than a decade, from acclaimed writer Keith Maillard.  
Dr. Erica Bauer - an identical twin - studies twins at the university in Vancouver. Through the course of her research, she meets a set of preteen twins who are evidently fraternal, but who insist emphatically that they are identical. Their mother, Karen Oxley, is a West Van single mum whose life is on the wrong road - and who discovers an urgent need to put it back on the right one. As Erica sets out to help the twins, their family’s lives become increasingly intertwined with hers in unexpected ways.  
Twin Studies is a masterful novel that explores the complicated bonds between twins and siblings, friends and lovers; the role of class and money; and the nature of gender and sexuality. It’s a novel with characters who are real, their relationships a rich world in which listeners will thoroughly lose themselves. No other contemporary novel so deftly explores the intersection between our inner lives and our public lives - that “we’re not what people see”.
