“In upstate New York, three aging brothers live the life of the past caught in the modern world as they work their dairy farm. One morning, one brother is found dead in the bed that they all share. A surviving brother gives a dubious confession. Did he commit murder, or is he really protecting his mentally handicapped brother? This is a well-written, twisting tale of endurance told through multiple voices.”

Description

Told in a chorus of voices that spans a generation, "Kings of the Earth" examines the bonds of family and blood, faith and suspicion, that link not just three brothers but their entire community.
