Quotes & Awards

  • “The characters in Brotherly Love do not speak in the soaring eloquence of the old plays, but their vernacular has its own music and their creator has supplied his story with a degree of insight, intensity and narrative drive that demands attention and well rewards it.”

    New York Times

  • “Dexter, National Book Award winner for Paris Trout, is adept at portraying those on the fringes of the mob who are sucked into its fury. His characters are unsavory but convincing, his action vicious but all too plausible.”

    Library Journal

  • “A masterfully devastating work.”
