Summary "Here is a tapestry of stories about the complex and unique relationship that exists between brothers. In this book, authors take an unvarnished look at how brothers admire and admonish, revere and revile, connect and compete, love and war with each other. With hearts and minds wide open,and, in some cases, with laugh-outloud humor, the writers tackle a topic that is as old as the Bible and yet has been, heretofore, overlooked." "Contributors range in age from twenty-four to eighty-four, and their stories from comic to tragic. Brothers examines and explores the experiences of love and loyalty and loss, of altruism and anger, of competition and compassion - the confluence of things that conspire to form the unique nature of what it is to be and to have a brother."--BOOK JACKET.
