The lone twin: a study in bereavement and loss
Twins hold a fascination for many people. We are intrigued by twins' closeness. But what happens when twins are separated, especially by death? Using John Bowlby's Attachment Theory as her conceptual base and illustrated by the words of lone twins themselves, the author takes the reader through the closeness of being a twin, including its negative aspects and their need to be different from each other.
