Summary

Hailed by "The New York Times" as "extraordinary," "Apples and Oranges" asks a universal question: how can two people from the same family turn out so entirely different?

Author Biography

MARIE BRENNER's Vanity Fair exposé of the tobacco industry was the basis for the Academy Award-nominated film The Insider. She also wrote Great Dames: What I Learned from Older Women.
