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
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.
