Publisher's Summary

A classic tale of brotherly love and rivalry from short story master Tobias Wolff.

Pete has always been successful. Happily married with two daughters, he lives a comfortable life in Santa Cruz. Pete is a practical, hardworking man and he enjoys life's monetary pleasures.

His younger brother, Donald, is a gaunt, troubled man. Unmarried and without children, Donald earns what little money he has by occasionally painting houses. He's a religious man, unlike Pete, and has spent several years as a member of various Christian groups.

When Pete receives a call from Donald, telling him that his most recent religious commune has failed, Pete decides to pick him up - a trip that will test the limits of the brothers' relationship.

Good Short Story

This was another one of Tobias Wolff's great short stories, I think Tobias is growing on me. Anthony Heald did a fine job narrating.

One brother has to go help out his perpetual screw-up other brother. The other brother predictably screws up. It was pretty good.
