Here is a tapestry of stories about the complex and unique relationship that exists between brothers. In this book, some of our finest 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-out-loud humor, the writers tackle a topic that is as old as the Bible and yet has been, heretofore, overlooked. Contributors range in age from 24 to 84, 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. ´´Brother. One of our eternal and quintessential terms of endearment,´´ Tobias Wolff writes. ´´The good luck of having a brother is partly the luck of having stories to tell.´´ David Kaczynski, brother of the Unabomber: ´´I´ll start with the premise that a brother shows you who you are and also who you are not. He´s an image of the self, at one remove....´´ ´´You are a ´we´ with your brother before you are a ´we´ with any other. Mikal Gilmore refers to brotherhood as a fidelity born of blood. We´ve heard that the apple doesn´t fall far from the tree. But where do the apples fall in relation to each other? And are we, in fact, our brothers keepers, after all? These stories address those questions and more, and are, like the relationships, full of intimacy and pain, joy and rage, burdens and blessings, humor and humanity. 1. Language: English.

´´Kate Braverman is a writer of astonishing versatility and lyricism. Her stories are brilliantly rendered, painfully intimate portraits of individuals who come alive on the page as if illuminated by strobe lighting. With remarkable precision she tracks the restless motions of a mind searching for its reflection in the world--a continuous interrogation of the self that sweeps us along with it, as in a mysterious adventure.´´--Joyce Carol Oates´´This extraordinary collection from Braverman features unforgettable stories of women on the edge, children overlooked, and men at the ends of their ropes. . . . Her details are so vivid that they feel like memories . . . Without glorifying or reveling in suffering, Braverman reveals the inner lives of her disparate cast of characters.´´--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review´´Kate Braverman is an original. Reading her is like hitching a ride on a runaway train, always dangerous, always thrilling, always a knockout. Seppuku is all that and more.´´--Frederick Barthelme, author of There Must Be Some Mistake´´Braverman is the godmother of literary bad girls and a connoisseur of the shattered beauty glittering in the wreckage of her characters´ lives. A Good Day for Seppuku celebrates the Braverman vision, and frames her legacy.´´--Janet Fitch, author of The Revolution of Marina M.´´Braverman daringly, ravishingly, and resoundingly dramatizes the profound consequences of delusions, lies, ignorance, anger, cruelty, poverty, disappointment, conformity, inebriation, and violence with high imagination, sensual precision, cutting humor, and bracing insight.´´--Donna Seaman, Booklist Starred Review ´´There is . . . a captivating undertone of dark humor to Braverman´s stories, whether it comes through description, interior narrative, or sharply bandied dialogue.´´--Meg Nola, Foreword ReviewsA thirteen-year-old girl must choose between her mother in Beverly Hills or her pot-growing father in the Allegheny Mountains. Dr. Bernie Roth and his wife Chloe reside in a grand hacienda in La Jolla. Their children are in college, and their disappointments are profound.

That´s camouflage?Mrs. Stein actually spends summers in the Sisyphean search for her prostitute daughter in Los Angeles.These are some of the tales told in Kate Braverman´s audacious new story collection. These furious and often hilarious tableaus of American family life remind us of why she has been seducing readers ever since her debut novel Lithium for Medea shook the literary world nearly forty years ago.´´Braverman possesses a magical, incantatory voice and the ability to lift ordinary lives into the heightened world of myth.´´?New York TimesKate Braverman is the author of a memoir, four novels, two story collections, and four books of poetry.
