Sisterland, the freshly minted
fourth novel by Cincinnati native Curtis Sittenfeld, centers on twin
sisters Kate and Violet, who have the unique psychic ability to see
future events, among other less vital factoids.
Earlier this year, I went to my cousin's wedding. It was a seriously Republican crowd. The only Democrat I met all weekend used to babysit the Bush twins. At a bridal luncheon given by a friend of the family well into her sixties, I was surprised to find a copy of Cincinnati native Curtis Sittenfeld's Prep. I was even more surprised to hear the hostess had read and enjoyed it.
