9780007112319: Brothers

A compelling account of a boy coming to terms with his brother’s death and his discovery of his own and his brother’s homosexuality.

Brothers is a book which is both compelling and intensely moving as it looks at life, death and love in the context of growing up and trying to make sense of it all. It is tender, sensitive and poignant as it deals with the sexual emergence of a teenage boy, trying to come to terms with the death of his brother and, while reading his brother’s diary, discovers not only that his brother was gay, but that he himself is also. As a story of two brothers, it is both thought provoking and intriguing. The reader is engaged instantly through its intimate narrative diary format. This is indeed an exceptional book.

About the Author:

Ted van Lieshout is well known for pushing boundaries of children’s literature, both as an author and poet.

He was born on December 21th of 1955 in Eindhoven and he lives in Amsterdam. He attended the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, where he studied illustration and graphic design.

Review:

“Sentimental? No. Moving? Very much so. Van Lieshout has written, in clear and simple language, one of the most beautiful books for adolescents I have read in ages.”

“A very vulnerable book that has made an indelible impression on me.”

“Brothers is a moving experience... It is certainly a page turner. I wanted to read further at every point... Emotionally charged and handled with immense sensitivity... Both voices are authentic and compelling.”

“A classic story in terms of its subject matter; life, death, and love all in the context of growing up and trying to make sense of it all (in the same mould as, say, Catcher in the Rye)... Tender, sensitive and poignant. It is a very moving story. This is an amazingly insightful, differentiated, subtle and beautiful novel.”
