About this item

We Were Brothers, Barry Moser’s beautiful--and beautifully illustrated--new book, tells the wrenching and redeeming story of brothers who take different paths and yet ultimately find their ways back to each other . . . Their careful reconciliation after decades of strife and avoidance is sad, moving, and joyful all at the same time."—Andrew Hudgins, author ofThe JokerPreeminent illustrator Barry Moser and his brother, Tommy, were born of the same parents, were raised in the same small Tennessee community, and were poisoned by their family’s deep racism and anti-Semitism. But as they grew older, their perspectives and their paths grew further and further apart. From attitudes about race, to food, politics, and money, the brothers began to think so differently that they could no longer find common ground, no longer knew how to talk to each other, and for years there was more strife between them than affection.When Barry was in his late fifties and Tommy in his early sixties, their fragile brotherhood reached a tipping point and blew apart. From that day forward they did not speak. But fortunately, their story does not end there. With the raw emotions that so often surface when we talk of our siblings, Barry recalls why and how they were finally able to traverse that great divide and reconcile their kinship before it was too late.  Including fifteen of Moser’s stunning drawings, this powerful true story captures the essence of sibling relationships--their complexities, contradictions, and mixed blessings.

Preeminent illustrator Barry Moser and his brother, Tommy, were born of the same parents, were raised in the same small Tennessee community, and were poisoned by their family?s deep racism and anti-Semitism. But as they grew older, their perspectives and their paths grew further and further apart.

But fortunately, their story does not end there. With the raw emotions that so often surface when we talk of our siblings, Barry recalls why and how they were finally able to traverse that great divide and reconcile their kinship before it was too late.

Including fifteen of Moser?s stunning drawings, this powerful true story captures the essence of sibling relationships--their complexities, contradictions, and mixed blessings.
