We were two
They were two but made only one. José Frèches believed that they had eternity before them. But on November 29, 2011, at the age of 61, he had to say goodbye to his twin. That day, he thought he was going to die too…
How to stay upright without his “other”, his mirror-brother, his first rival? For a long time the writer withdrew himself into silence. Until this book… and this miracle: by talking about Jean-Benoît, the author was revealed to himself. He returned to life.
We were two is a heartbreaking confession. On the happiness and the curse of being twins, and, beyond, on all those orphans who, one day, will lose their soul mates.
In this inspiring book, José Frèches invites us to overcome our sorrows and to celebrate the desire to live again.
An open-hearted story, as intimate as it is universal.
José Frèches is the author of best-sellers translated into twenty-one languages, such as The Legend of the Jade, The Silk Empress and The Empire of Tears.
