Published: Algonquin Books - October 20th, 2015

A "southern" memoir - reminiscent of other stellar writers such as Pat Conroy and Rick Bragg - of Moser’s difficult relationship with his brother, and the racist environment in which they were raised that came between them. The story moves to a dramatic and redemptive climax and we are led to realize that it is never too late to heal a wounded relationship. ~ Reviewed by Barbara Morrow
