Summary
Ask today's favorite novelists what books influenced their writing and you'll hear "Brother of the More Famous Jack "again and again." Dog-eared copies of this long out-of-print novel are highly prized and shared enthusiastically in literary circles--its return to print is cause for celebration. Stylish, suburban Katherine is eighteen when she is propelled into the heart of Professor Jacob Goldman's rambling home and his large eccentric family. As his enchanting yet 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 later, older and wiser, she returns to find the Goldmans again
