The Boys From Siam
by John Austin Connolly
The Boys From Siam is based loosely on the lives of the nineteenth-century brothers Chang and Eng Bunker (the original "Siamese twins"). It is a haunting and lyrical story of the conjoined twins Pigg and Pegg.
"The Boys from Siam, by John Connolly, is, in its final version, a beautifully realized concentrated universe. It takes big chances along the way, unhesitatingly assuming it knows what it’s doing (which is almost always), and makes us care—really care. Put all this together and you have a winner. "
