Description

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


'Elegant, thoughtful and powerful' Daisy Buchanan


'Hugely original and heartbreakingly real' Rosie Walsh


*****


ONE LIFE. LIVED TWICE.


Louis and Louise are the same person born in two different lives. They are separated only by the sex announced by the doctor and a final 'e'.


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.
