Publisher Description

From the author of National Book Award finalist Charles and Emma comes an incredible story of brotherly love.

The deep and enduring friendship between Vincent and Theo Van Gogh shaped both brothers’ lives. Confidant, champion, sympathizer, friend?Theo supported Vincent as he struggled to find his path in life. They shared everything, swapping stories of lovers and friends, successes and disappointments, dreams and ambitions.

Meticulously researched, drawing on the 658 letters Vincent wrote to Theo during his lifetime, this book portrays two lives intertwined and the extraordinary love of the Van Gogh brothers.

  • “Narrator Phil Fox weaves facts and anecdotes with aplomb…Fox’s delivery is crisp and precise, a style that goes well with the present-tense writing. The audiobook has the structure of a walk through an art gallery, and Fox helps listeners enter the scenes….[and] makes the story and its time period clear.”

  • “Passion, intimacy, and family love propel this masterful, suitably impressionistic portrait…Thorough familiarity with the brothers’ copious correspondence, sensitivity and originality in reading it, and alertness to the imaginative afterlife of seemingly simple exchanges make this revelatory, compulsive reading. Highly recommended.”

    - Toronto Star
  • “A remarkably insightful, profoundly moving story of fraternal interdependence and unconditional love.”

    - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
  • “A unique and riveting exploration of art, artists, and brotherly love.”

    - Horn Book (starred review)
  • “Heiligman delivers an exquisitely told, heartfelt portrayal of that deep emotional and intellectual bond.”

    - School Library Journal (starred review)
  • “Heiligman’s writing is evocative; it is lyrical, and the scenes seem like paintings. She deftly explores the characters’ inner lives and gives insight into the attitude people of the day had about mental illness.”
