Brothers: A Novel by Da Chen [in Bloomsbury Review]
Author of bestselling memoirs Colors of the Mountain and Sounds of the River, Da Chen debuts his first novel for adults. The sprawling saga, set in late-20th-century China, follows the inevitably intertwined lives of two brothers born of two mothers, one into privilege and luxury, the other into deprivation and poverty. Their paths inevitably cross, complicated and heightened by the brothers’ love for the same woman.
