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.
