Beschreibung

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
