Napawaupee, Wisconsin is the hometown you all remember, where the hottest action going is high school football or statutory rape and booze is the salve for what Jesus can't heal." The Connollys of Napawaupee are the quintessential small-town family. They are the "royals of a cast-off kingdom, curators of an inbred knowledge, the keepers of a dull flame."
In The Brothers Connolly, three generations of this proud, prosaic family will be defined by their aspirations, their vices and, finally, by tragedy.

I love this book. Glad they used a great narrarator to perform it. Extremely well-written, and a great story that will stick with you long, long after you're done. Highly recommended!
Yes. Just a down to earth story that could happen anywhere.
All characters are good.
I have listened to other performances by Paul J McSorley. He always does a great job and this book is no exception!
Again, all characters are good and have their strong points.
Good book about an American family getting through life's challenges.
Exceptionally written and narrated. The author is very articulate and the narrator brings you into the lives of this family. I could actually see every family member as the book unfolds.
The Brothers Karamazov, maybe? This could just be because of the name, but also because of the family fighting for survival with a crazed family member.
My favorite scenes were centered around Jack. A homosexual who had to move home after failed attempts to be a playwright in the big city.
Lives in small town America.
Highly recommend this book!
