The Brothers K

READER RECOMMENDATION

David James Duncan's novel The Brothers K is an absolutely brilliant piece of writing telling the story of the ordinary/extraordinary Chance family. This book captures the essence of the tumultuous 1960's as seen through the various members of this wonderful family. Duncan delivers a heartfelt, unforgettable tale that speaks of baseball, religion, the Viet Nam War, and familial love. I highly recommend it.
