Division

By Karen A. Wyle

Sci-Fi | Paperback, eBook


Conjoined twins Gordon and Johnny have never let their condition keep them from living full, fulfilling lives. Gordon looks forward to many years of closeness and cooperation. Johnny, however, faces their future with increasing restlessness, even dread. When the boys are in their teens, the new technologies of accelerated human cloning and brain transplants are combined into a single medical procedure. Someone whose body has suffered such extensive damage as to make normal life impossible may -- with court approval -- be cloned and then given a brain transplant into the clone body. With Gordon's unwitting assistance, Johnny realizes that this procedure provides the chance he had never dared to hope for -- the chance to live in a "normal," separate body. But Gordon considers their conjoined life a blessing, rather than a curse. He has no intention of accepting separation -- not without a fight . . . .

Karen A. Wyle lives in Bloomington, Indiana, home of Indiana University. She and her husband have two grown and wildly creative daughters and a sweet but neurotic dog. Wyle has been a voracious and compulsive reader as long as she can remember. Her voice is the product of almost five decades of reading both literary and genre fiction. It is no doubt also influenced, although she hopes not fatally tainted, by her years of practicing appellate law. Her personal history has led her to focus on often-intertwined themes of individual identity, family, communication, the impossibility of controlling events, and the persistence of unfinished business.
