“Hugely satisfying. . . [Dornstein’s] journey. . . reveals not just the truth about the Dornstein brothers but about love, loss, and ultimately life’s inescapable transience.” —Daniel Akst, The Boston Globe“Creating narrative coherence out of awful accident is, I suppose, a textbook way of dealing with grief. . . . [But] Dornstein’s skill as a writer makes the raw material [of his brother’s life] seem tailor-made for the form he has chosen. . . . It’s a compelling, sad, thoughtful book.” —Nick Hornby, The Believer“Dornstein has written a book that transcends its subject, becoming a meditation upon not only his brother’s life but his own. All of ours.”—Benjamin Alsup, Esquire “Without an ounce of self-pity or melodrama, [Dornstein] writes with razor-sharp clarity and realizes, as we do, how the chapters themselves are a testament to the enormous love between these two brothers.”—Marion Fontana, The Washington Post Book World
