    So an average chapter may have some information on say, the traveling route of the brothers, and I received this book as a Goodreads Giveaway. Rising in anger, the doctor said, "You are all a set of impostors and pickpockets", and disorder erupted as guests threw objects across the room. In the public eye, Abel Coffin, the man who first brought them to the United States, continued to serve as a father figure to the twins. They also wondered how long the Yates sisters could stand the ignominy of having to bed two swarthy Asian freaks.

    The Knick portrays conjoined twins Zoya and Nika, who share a liver. The journalistic preamble about the twins being moody and sulky, the gothic setting of an exotic bird milling around and a "colored boy" doing handiwork nearby, and finally the dramatic entry of the real exotic bird, the conjoined twins, in the doorway, clad in coarse cotton, chewing tobacco, like some ominous creature, barefoot no less—as if reprising a scene from Arabian Nights, the most popular contraband book in colonial America—busting out of a cage, all combined to suggest something bestial, crude, scandalous. The fictional sisters are shown to be child prostitutes in the music video for "Sandy Fishnets", and the song "Evelyn, Evelyn" describes their longing for privacy and to be separated from one another. Huang is attuned to the ironies of their story in his incisive and riveting account. Tamil actor Suriya portrays Vimalan and Akilan, conjoined twins in the film, Maattrraan.

    Mohl, Raymond A. Previously the term was used as a synonym for the more accurate term 'conjoined twins'. Coffin accused Hale of "exciting his subjects to rebellion" Hale had done no such thingand after a chase he finally tracked down the brothers in Bath, New York. This was the fate that awaited poor Masha and Dasha — human guinea pigs whose lives would be scarred by the warped fantasies of evil scientists working for a totalitarian regime. Chang and Eng would spend much of the remainder of their lives, another 45 years, in the harsh light of the public stage. Twenty-one children for two couples may seem extraordinary and could possibly feed into some of the prevailing stereotypes that portrayed primitive "Orientals" engaging in bestial sex and breeding like animals.
