From the critically acclaimed author of the collection Kentucky Straight and memoir My Father the Pornographer, The Good Brother is the finely crafted debut novel from a talent the New York Times calls ?a fierce writer?.

Virgil Caudill has never gone looking for trouble, but this time he's got no choice?his hell-raising brother Boyd has been murdered. Everyone knows who did it, and in the hills of Kentucky, tradition won?t let a murder go unavenged. No matter which way he chooses, Virgil will lose.

The Good Brother is the story of a man?s struggle to find his real self in the wake of an impossible choice. Traversing the American landscape from the hollows of Eastern Kentucky to the plains of Montana, Offutt explores the hunger for belonging that drives our most passionate beliefs, and in the process shows himself to be one of our most powerful storytellers.
