“The best book on sisters, very important and beautifully written.”—Carol Gilligan, author of In a Different Voice
This “substantial contribution to the literature on sibling relationships” (Library Journal) explores the intricacy, friction, and love in bonds between sisters. Relationships between women are often freighted with a rocky mix of emotions—devotion and disregard, affection and loathing, admiration and envy—leading to anguish and confusion on the playground, in the home, and in the boardroom. Negotiating her layered feelings toward a sister shapes a woman’s psychology as forcefully as do her relationships with her parents. Drawing on compelling interviews and new research, Terri Apter considers the many aspects of the sister relationship from birth through adulthood. The need to fight to differentiate oneself from a sister, as well the protectiveness one feels for that same person, is explained by reference to extensive psychological and biological evidence.
“A beautiful and important book.”—Professor Juliet Mitchell, author of Siblings: Sex and Violence
“Insightful. ... Apter skillfully uncovers the complicated feelings inherent in sisterhood.”—Library Journal

Terri Apter, PhD, is the author of You Don’t Really Know Me and senior tutor at Newnham College, University of Cambridge, where she conducts research on family dynamics.
