Just thought I'd contribute my two cents: One of the most interesting aspects of "My Sister's Continent" in my opinion was the interplay of "twin-ness" and psychology. Though I wanted a definitive answer to the question of whether or not abuse had occurred, and, if so, who had been abused, I felt the ambiguity was appropriate in that there is something about the psychology of twins (I have identical twin cousins) whether because of some innate physiology or because of society's reaction to twins, that makes their psyches somewhat more intertwined than we single-births can quite comprehend. The doctor uses Kirby to understand Kendra, yet understanding Kendra is key to understanding Kirby. It's not actually important who was the victim; if either was, they both were. Gina Frangello has taken what is true about Freud's analysis (let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater here; Freud often got the mechanisms wrong, but he did hit on some essential truths) and separated wheat from chaff, which is what is so admirable (and enviable) in this novel.
