Brother of the More Famous Jack: 40th Anniversary Edition

Barbara Trapido, Maria Semple, Rachel Cusk

A joyful 40th anniversary edition of a coming-of-age classic: ‘there are few modern tales of first love and its disillusions that are as thoroughly realised, as brilliantly lewd, and as hilariously satisfying to men and women of all ages as this one’ (Rachel Cusk)

Eighteen-year-old Katherine - bright, stylish, frustratedly suburban - doesn’t know how her life will change when the brilliant Jacob Goldman first offers her a place at university. When she enters the Goldmans' rambling bohemian home, presided over by the beatific matriarch Jane, she realises that Jacob and his family are everything she has been waiting for.

But when a romantic entanglement ends in tears, Katherine is forced into exile from the family she loves most. And her journey back into the fold, after more than a decade away, will yield all kinds of delightful surprises…
