** We Were Brothers by Barry Moser

3 memoirs in a row! We Were Brothers is the story of brothers who grew up, close, in a racist Southern family — but one left, went North, and shed the racism while the other stayed. The book tells the story of their long estrangement and their efforts to patch up the relationship, not too successfully. Along the way the author remembers his childhood and to me, that was the best part of the story.
