Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Stylish, suburban Katherine is eighteen when she is propelled into the heart of Professor Jacob Goldman's home and his large eccentric family. As his enchanting if sharp-tongued wife Jane gives birth to her sixth child, Katherine meets beautiful, sulky Roger and his volatile younger brother Jonathan. Inevitable heartbreak sends her fleeing to Rome but ten years on, older and wiser, she returns to find the Goldmans again. Brother of the More Famous Jack is the highly acclaimed classic that redefined the coming-of-age genre, featuring Trapido's much-loved Goldman family and most enchanting heroine.

Review:
'A sort of bohemian Brideshead Revisited' Times Literary Supplement 'A story, like Mansfield Park, of falling in love with a whole family' A. N. Wilson, Spectator 'The style is hectic and passionate, the jokes thick and fast, the emotions full and right, the humanity total and engulfing ... a first fruit to savour and exalt' Andrew Sinclair, The Times 'Its high spirits are irresistible. Like Moll Flanders, the heroine is unstoppable' John Braine, Sunday Telegraph
