Note "A memoir by the award-winning actress about her younger brother, Randy, and the ways in which siblings' lives can diverge and then come back together"-- Provided by publisher
"A sibling who doesn't fit in or follow the paths the rest of us take; who challenges and bewilders, upsets and dazzles us; who scares some of us away; but who still loves us, in his or her way..." When they were kids in the suburbs of Los Angeles in the 1950s, Diane Keaton and her younger brother, Randy, were best friends and companions - the two eldest of four children who lived, in some ways, the picture-perfect American childhood. But as they grew up, Randy became troubled, then reclusive. Before he was thirty, he was divorced, an alcoholic, a man who couldn't hold on to full-time work - his life a world away from his sister's, and from the rest of their family. Now Diane is delving into the nuances of their shared, and separate, pasts to confront the difficulty question of why and how Randy ended up living his life on "the other side of normal." In beautiful and fearless prose that's intertwined with journal entries, letters, and poetry - much of it Randy's own - and supplemented by personal photographs and artwork, this insightful, heartfelt memoir contemplates the inner workings of a family, the ties of love and responsibility that hold it together, and the special bond between siblings - even those who are pulled far apart. A story with universal echoes, Brother & Sister speaks across generations, to families whose lives have been touched by the fragility of loved ones, and to brothers and sisters everywhere. -- From dust jacket
