Review:

"A first-rate novel and a masterly evocation of that undercivilized and unfree America . . . The grace and confidence of [Pete Dexter's] prose conveys absolute authenticity."--"The New York Times Book Review"
"Enviably artful work--carefully wrought, canny in its insights, sly in its presentation, sneaky in its revelations."--"Chicago Tribune"
"Extraordinarily poignant . . . "Brotherly Love" is all bulletproof prose and flinty-eyed bravissimo. . . . But the quieter, sadder aspects of the novel are its strongest points."--"The Boston Globe"
"Tautly and often exquisitely written."--"Los Angeles Times"
