Interview: Pam Wagner and Sister: Divided Minds

There is a good NPR (National Public Radio) interview with Pamela Wagner and her twin sister Carolyn about their book "Divided Minds".

The introduction to the interview reads as follows:

"Carolyn Spiro and her twin sister, Pamela Spiro Wagner, know the devastating toll of schizophrenia and those menacing, imaginary voices firsthand.

They are identical twin sisters. Carolyn is a psychiatrist and Pamela a gifted writer. Pam is also one of more than three million Americans suffering from schizophrenia.

Carolyn and Pamela discuss their new book "Divided minds: Twin Sisters and Their Journey Through Schizophrenia."

Dear Pam and Lynnie,
Hearing your distinctly different voices express your distinctly different perceptions of the landscape of your inextricably bound lives gave each of you new and far clearer reality in my mind. You are indeed two separate but equal women, blessed with the truly precious gift of twinship, a relationship that few of us will ever know. From my vantage point as your friend, critic, true believer in your individual genius, and the honor of being dubbed "Twinnie Three", your book was the most courageous and completely honest account I have ever read. With Pam's renewal and joy with her ability to move freely within a world which once imprisoned her, I agree with Lynnie that a new book is a must.
I love my very special twins,
Your Peskless Pal, Paula
