Summary, etc.:
"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.
In the suburbs of Los Angeles in the 1950s, Keaton and her younger brother, Randy, were best friends and companions. But as they grew up, Randy became troubled, then reclusive. By the time he reached adulthood, he was divorced, an alcoholic, a man who couldn't hold on to full-time work. Here she confronts the difficult question of why and how Randy ended up living his life on "the other side of normal." Keaton contemplates the inner workings of a family, the ties that hold it together, and the special bond between siblings even when they are pulled far apart. -- adapted from jacket
