26 Stories of Love and RivalrySatisfaction:
This book will be a great and compelling reading experience, deeply moving, profoundly intelligent, and totally entertaining, including fiction and memoir about: * Brothers by choice, or from different families but closely bonded by shared experience, work, trauma, love and marriage. * Brothers who describe themselves as "brothers in arms, blood brothers, a band of brothers, the brother I never had." The premise of Blauner's commentary and selections is that brothers and brotherhood is important, and crucial to understanding ourselves, our families, and our place in the world. Not "a valentine" but an edgy, challenging, confrontive and intimate psychological perspective with a big mix of tone, culture, and narrative style. The key is in the very high quality of the writers and their work.
