About this Article

To characterize Curtis Sittenfeld's new novel, "Sisterland," as an ideal beach read isn't meant as an insult. The author of "American Wife," her new novel isn't as sappy as the jacket description implies. It's the story of identical twins -- Kate and Violet -- who are raised by an emotionally absent father and a depressed mother and share the gift (or curse) of "senses" or an ability to see people's secrets and events before they happen.
