Overview

Fathers, Sons, & Brothers: The Men in My Family by Bret Lott

Exploring three generations of the men in his family — his father and his two uncles, his own two brothers, and his two sons — Bret Lott spins a sweeping true saga of the ties that bind. With quiet grace and his trademark talent for finding powerful revelations in the most unlikely places, master novelist Lott delivers a bracingly personal and honest memoir that confronts the often inexpressible complexities of contemporary maleness. Fathers, Sons, and Brothers describes not only the ways men and boys relate to one another but also how their lives evolve over decades, endlessly imitative yet varied. In the end, these essays constitute a celebration of humanity, regardless of gender — of joy and sorrow, of intimacy and distance, of lingering secrets and universal truths.
