How would you like a clone of yourself? Mind; memory; ego; everything: a complete spare copy. Sounds like fun; but there might be complications as well.
You are Donald North, 46; obscure part-time history prof. An old Harvard classmate, now a bio-tech celebrity, makes an offhand offer at a party to clone you double-quick. It’s a put-on, so you agree.
Two weeks later, he introduces you to yourself.
What do you say to the guy? How can you believe it? Where did he come from?
Which of you is more surprised? Which one is the original?
How do you cope—both of you? Will you live under the same roof? Share the same job? Are two heads better than one? What if a girlfriend enters the picture?
Did you really want to see yourself as others see you? Who’s in charge here? And will the real me please sit down?
We meet quite an odd couple in The Me Clone. Donald North learns more about himself than he wanted to know. But he also relearns some ancient truths about self itself.
