Tales of brotherhood from the Unabomber's brother, the late Frank McCourt, and other literary luminaries

Andrew Blauner offers a wonderful a tapestry of stories about the complex and unique relationship that exists between brothers. In this book, David Sedaris, Ethan Canin, Richard Ford, Pete Hamill, Tobias Wolff and others take an unvarnished look at how brothers admire and admonish, revere and revile, connect and compete, love and fight with each other. With hearts and minds wide open, and, in some cases, with laugh-out-loud humor, the writers tackle a topic that is as old as the Bible and yet has been, heretofore, largely overlooked.
