Overview

Threading its way through some of the most significant events in modern american history and grappling with issues raised by the FDR legacy, William F. Buckley’s first novel without Blackford Oakes is “a moral thriller, a story of human frailty, testing, and redemption of the spirit” (Baltimore Sun) that “aspires to genuine greatness” (Washington Post).

The celebrated columnist and lecturer offers a new novel--in the gloriously gripping tradition of Howard Fast, Irwin Shaw, and Jeffrey Archer--of men and women caught between the force of history and the power of their own desires. Brothers No More tells the sweeping story of the lives and times of two men--one searching to redeem his courage and resolve, the other undone by his own ambition and greed.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Danny O'Hara is exuberant, generous, ambitious-and the grandson of the recently deceased Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Henry Chafee is quiet and deliberate, from a pleasant but undistinguished family. The two, former roommates at Yale, are sharing a foxhole on the Arno line in WWII when Henry turns coward and Danny saves his life. So begins this latest novel from Buckley (A Very Private Plot), who won the American Book Award for Stained Glass (1978) but is unlikely to duplicate that feat with this predictable, if glitzy, offering. Long flashbacks fill in the past up to the Arno incident; through these and subsequent passages, it becomes clear that Danny will manipulate people and events whenever he can turn them to his advantage. In adulthood, this blueblood becomes a crooked hotelier and worse, while Henry makes his mark as a journalist, especially during the Vietnam War. Eventually, Henry gets the goods on Danny and must make a difficult decision. Numerous cameos by the real-life rich and powerful enliven the proceedings (Georges Simenon plays a vital role); underneath all the provocative names and places, however, this is just a potboiler, deftly stirred but no match for Buckley's best. Major ad/promo; author tour. (Sept.)
Library Journal
Buckley's newest gripper begins in World War II, when a young man covers for a friend whose courage failed him at the last moment, and ends in acrimony years later.
