Jane Roper, "Double Time: How I Survived -and Mostly Thrived"

Becoming a mother is rarely what you expect.


Jane Roper never expected she’d have twins—or that they’d be such a spirited twosome. She didn’t expect that finding the right balance of work and home would be so tricky. And she certainly didn’t expect she’d grapple with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder during her daughters’ toddler years. But she also didn’t anticipate just how much joy, laughter and self-discovery motherhood would bring.


Full of warmth, honesty, occasional advice, and a generous helping of humor, Double Time is a smart and engaging account of the first three years with multiples and a refreshingly candid and vulnerable look at clinical depression. It’s a memoir that will resonate countless women—especially those parenting in double time.


Jane Roper is the author of a memoir, Double Time: How I Survived–and Mostly Thrived–Through the First Three Years of Mothering Twins (St. Martin’s Press, 2012), and a novel, Eden Lake (Last Light Studio, 2011).  She received her MFA in fiction from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, and her writing has appeared on Salon, Babble, The Huffington Post, Poets & Writers, The Rumpus, Post Road and Salt Hill, and the forthcoming anthology The Push: Birth Stories for the 21st Century (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2014). Jane lives in the Boston area with her husband and twin daughters.
