The most distinctive thing about the Gamal sisters is that they are, essentially, indistinguishable. The twin spinsters spend their time trying to mask any perceptible differences they have while working hard at their tailoring business in northern Mexico. When a suitor enters the picture, one of the sisters decides that she doesn't want to live a life without romance. Suffused with the tension between our desire for romance and our desire for independence, One Out of Two is a giddy comic fable by one of the giants of contemporary Latin American literature.

At first glance, cute and fun, but perhaps a deeper statement here about living with death in Mexico.
