    Born and raised in a poor, working-class family in Toronto, Jack Spayd is the son of an unhappy marriage. After being taken under the wing of "Miss Frostbite", the owner of a local jazz club, Jack becomes a gifted musician, playing piano and harmonica. Fame and the allure of gambling takes him to Vegas, and prospects of fortune take him to the Belgian Congo, where he's heard it's possible to earn big money working in the most dangerous parts of the local copper mines.

    Story
    (690)

    From the author of The Power of One comes an inspiring human drama of three lives brought together and changed forever by the extraordinary events of recent history. Inspired by real events, Bryce Courtenay's new novel tells the story of three people from vastly differing backgrounds. All they have in common is a tough beginning in life.

    Where does Brother Fish rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very enjoyable.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Brother Fish?

    there was many wonderful memories, one when Jack McKenzie and Jimmy Oldcorn returned to the island after the end of the war to be welcomed by his family and friends.


    What does Humphrey Bower bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have become accustomed to his voice and his voice is what that brings the story alive for me.


    If you could rename Brother Fish, what would you call it?

    Brothers Forever. But why would you even think to change it.
