Back in print, the debut novel that redefined the coming-of-age genre, now with an introduction by New York Times bestselling author Maria Semple.
Ask today's favorite novelists what books influenced their writing and you'll hear Brother of the More Famous Jack again and again. Worn 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.
