'Controlled and fearless perfection' - The Washington Post
Jamaica Kincaid's brother Devon Drew died of AIDS on 19 January 1996, at the age of thirty-three. This incantatory, poetic, and often shockingly frank recounting of her brother's life and death is also the story of her family on the island of Antigua, a constellation centered on her powerful, sometimes threatening mother. My Brother is an unblinking record of a life that ended too early, and it speaks volumes about the difficult truths at the heart of all families.
My Brother was a 1997 National Book Award Finalist for Nonfiction.
