Oct. 6, 2011 - PRLog -- Bruce Bothwell’s newly published novel, Brothers for Life, Volume II: The 1970s captures both the great and small aspects of the decade. Bothwell’s account of the period is based on the unfolding relationship of two thirty-something brothers, Bryce and Glenn Burrell, who exchange hundreds of letters in the course of ten years.
The brother’s witty, playful correspondence is punctuated by the occasional conflict. They correspond about marriage, religion, divorce, children, the school district’s views on Catcher in the Rye, the demands of the PhD program at Harvard, Howard Cosell, and John Wooden’s UCLA Bruin basketball juggernaut, and more. The novel reveals lives of humor and pathos, drama and sadness, and offers readers some universal insights into the human condition.
“Mr. Bothwell used his real-life letters as a basis for the novel. The evolving relationship between brothers, recreated through letters to create a novel, will fascinate readers. We come to like these guys, as we eavesdrop on their dialogue, and feel a new appreciation for the powerful bonds of family,” said Nancy Barnes, editor of Stories To Tell.
