  • The Double

    Jose Saramago, Margaret Jull Costa

    Hardcover (Harcourt, Oct. 4, 2004)
    Tertuliano Máximo Afonso is a history teacher in a secondary school. He is divorced, involved in a rather one-sided relationship with a bank clerk, and he is depressed. To lift his depression, a colleague suggests he rent a certain video. Tertuliano watches the film and is unimpressed. During the night, noises in his apartment wake him. He goes into the living room to find that the VCR is replaying the video, and as he watches in astonishment he sees a man who looks exactly like him-or, more specifically, exactly like the man he was five years before, mustachioed and fuller in the face. He sleeps badly.Against his own better judgment, Tertuliano decides to pursue his double. As he establishes the man's identity, what begins as a whimsical story becomes a dark meditation on identity and, perhaps, on the crass assumption behind cloning-that we are merely our outward appearance rather than the sum of our experiences.

  • Double Ducks

    Ryanin Bryce, Trent Milburn

    Hardcover (Trafford Publishing, July 14, 2008)
    Darcy lived on a faraway station property with his brother Doug. Of all the wild and tame animals his favourites were his pet ducks. One day Darcy noticed two sister ducklings had become inseparable. They waddled, ate, swam and did everything together. When the two ducks grew up, they built their nests side by side and laid their eggs together. Darcy wondered what they would do when their eggs hatched. Which duck would teach the ducklings to swim? Which mother duck would the ducklings follow? Darcy asked Frederick, the station jackeroo. He knew everything about animals. In time, as the ducks laid their eggs the boys watched and counted. How many eggs would the two ducks lay? How many would hatch? How would they all fit in the nest? And… how would the ducks raise their ducklings together? The ducks guarded their valuable eggs against the perils of the changing temperature, a resident blue-tongue lizard and Bodgie, the nosy station dog. When the big day arrived, the ducklings began tapping their way out of their confined eggs. One by one, each duckling struggled out from its broken eggshell into the protection of its warm, downy home and had its first wobbly walk. Finally, the boys' curiosity was satisfied. One mother led a line of disorganized, yellow, fluffy balls from the nest while the other mother brought up the rear, gently nudging the ducklings along. Darcy counted carefully. Yes, he sighed smiling. Yes! There was the same number of ducklings as there were eggs.
