Overview
In the City of Brotherly Love, a car skids off the ice and ignites a chain of events that changes everything for eight-year-old Peter Flood. Peter s father is a powerful man, a union boss with mob connections, but all the power in the world is useless to a grieving son. Raised by his uncle, Peter tries to distance himself from the casual brutality of the family business, gravitating instead toward a small South Philly gym. Peter s cousin Michael his brother moves in another direction: into small-time intimidation and the trappings of a union prince. Neither, however, can outrun the logic of violence as they re dragged into a world of bad blood and a chilling cycle of betrayal and retribution.
Praise for "Brotherly Love"
""
A first-rate novel and a masterly evocation of that undercivilized and unfree America . . . The grace and confidence of Pete Dexter s] prose conveys absolute authenticity. "The New York Times Book Review"
Enviably artful work carefully wrought, canny in its insights, sly in its presentation, sneaky in its revelations. "Chicago Tribune"
Extraordinarily poignant . . . "Brotherly Love" is all bulletproof prose and flinty-eyed bravissimo. . . . But the quieter, sadder aspects of the novel are its strongest points. "The Boston Globe"
Tautly and often exquisitely written. "Los Angeles Times""
