26A by Diana Evans
26A by Diana Evans is also fabulous. It is her first novel. She uses magic realism to frame the story of identical twins Georgia and Bessie who live in London with their family. Evans wrote the book after her own identical twin committed suicide in 1998. She was looking for books that explored the special bond that twins have--couldn't find any, so wrote her own. This book won the Orange Prize for New Fiction.
