Acerca del libro

A lyrical memoir about open marriage, autotheory, desire, identity, art, ambition, and identity, for fans of Graywolf Nonfiction Prize winners, Roland Barthes’s A Lover’s Discourse, Maggie Nelson’s The Argonauts, or Chris Kraus’s I Love DickA mesmerizing, quickly immersive narrative told through shifting mediums of correspondence; a couple opening up their relationship to distance and other partners; a blend of personal experience, references to art/performance, and auto-theory.Lyrical and lucid, Leah Dieterich’s memoir is of the zeitgeist, straddling the literary and the popular topics of our day A provocative, intelligent and playful entry into the national cultural discussion about open marriage. Vanishing Twins explores open marriage in the context of queer identity; discovering and wanting to explore her own desires led Leah and her husband to explore an unconventional marriageOpen marriages have recently in mainstream conversation thanks in part to May 2017 pieces like The New York Times Magazine’s divisive “Is an Open Marriage a Happier Marriage?” (May 2017) and the NPR feature on how Netflix, Amazon, MTV Networks, and other major television players were portraying “open relationships as…an ongoing part of storylines, key to driving plots and understanding major characters. They’re not just stunts… Based on conversations with MTV viewers, [one executive] added, there’s probably not enough representation of unconventional and polyamorous relationships on TV.”The smart and cheeky wordplay throughout Vanishing Twins is delightful and insightful; words and their meaning assume a three-dimensional space in the narrator’s world, motivating decisions and opening doors of discovery: “The connections she ties between typography and twinning and ballet and sex are unexpected and frequently magical” (Sarah Manguso, author of 300 Arguments)A charismatic social media presence and copywriter by trade, thxthxthx author Leah Dieterich (based in Portland, OR with strong ties to Los Angeles and New York, and to the fine art scene on both coasts) will be an effective and creative co-promoter of her own work Author events confirmed in Los Angeles, CA; Seattle, WA; Portland, OR; and Brooklyn, NYBookseller praise for Vanishing Twins”How do you make room, in a marriage, for the feelings and compulsions that exceed your expectations of one-true-love? Can ‘openness’ be the key that frees couples who feel locked in wedlock? Vanishing Twins explores these and many other questions in propulsive epigrammatic style. Leah Dieterich makes the history of her relationships (with lovers, family, and with herself), her hopes, dreams, and desires, come alive, and she does this without wasting any words.” —John Francisconi, Bank Square Books (Mystic CT)”This is a very cool book—a story we don’t often hear, about how people change, or change together, over time, and all the different types of relationships that become important to us. Leah Dieterich combines her dance background, fascination with twins, and the story of her marriage in a unique, fascinating way that kept me turning pages very quickly.” —Abby Fennewald, BookPeople (Austin TX)”Vanishing Twins is a strange and beautifully relatable memoir that gave me cause to ask if I might be missing my twin. Dieterich is honest in the way that few biographies are, and it makes putting this book down nearly impossible. Vanishing Twins is a story of longing. It might not be for everyone, but it is for me. And it’s for you if you haven’t read it. You’re just not aware of it yet. Wonderful read.” —Rob Hawthorn, Gallery Bookshop (Mendocino, CA)”A meditation of what it means to be an individual in a culture that measures self-worth based on relationships to others. Written in fragments, Dieterich fixates on finding her ‘twin,’ the perfect counterbalance to validate her every insecurity and cure every pang of loneliness. Her rumination has the ability to ask a million questions but has to live among infinite allusive ambiguities.” —Nolan Fellows, Rediscovered Bookshop (Boise, ID)”Vanishing Twins compounds snapshots of dance, the twin-ness of life, and unspoken desires to reap a startling meditation on love’s dissolution and rediscovery. Leah Dietrich’s writing feels true and utterly vulnerable; the story she shares, of the dive into an open marriage with her husband of nearly a decade, is plagued with doubt, specters of shame and existential terror. The emotional whirlwind of this book cuts deep. And remarkably, it is the most uplifting thing I’ve read in a long time.” —Uriel Perez, BookPeople (Austin, TX)”Gorgeously written, self-aware without being self-absorbed, Vanishing Twins is a fascinating memoir and study of marriage. Upending expectations of love, desire, and relationships, this intelligent and poetic work is well worth your time.” —Jill Owens, Powell’s Books (Portland, OR)
