Summary note
  • "A brilliant, hilarious, endlessly inventive debut, Hey Harry, Hey Matilda is the story--told entirely in emails--of fraternal twins Harry and Matilda Goodman as they fumble into adulthood, telling lies and keeping secrets, and finally confronting their complicated twin-ship"-- Provided by publisher.
  • Matilda Goodman is an wedding photographer grappling with her failure to live as an artist and the very bad lie she has told her boyfriend-- that she has a dead twin. Harry, her (totally alive) brother, is an untenured professor of literature, anxiously contemplating his publishing status (unpublished) and sleeping with a student. Then Matilda invites her boyfriend home for Thanksgiving to meet the family, and Harry makes an unethical move to save his career. This sets off an avalanche of shame, scandal, and drunken hot tub revelations that force them to examine the truth about who they really are.
