Beschreibung:

This is a very traditional/untraditional novel. On the surface,it follows the lives of two brothers, close in age, who are bitter rivals in the end. We have the biblical Cain and Able reborn in the bodies of Billy and Bruce Aben. Bruce is the good brother. Single, middle class, with a white collar job, he leads a perfectly contented life in New York City. He takes two vacations a year, has his patented circle of friends and treasures playing the classical guitar. He prides himself on being the most decent person he knows. Billy on the other hand is the ultimate rebel. He hates middle class values; he abhors surrounding himself with comfort. The world to him is one big sham. Morality is for morons like his brother Bruce. The only thing that matters is making a quick buck any way you can; commodity trading, stock manipulation, outright theft are all permissible in Billys world. So there you have the brothers. One can only imagine their interaction. Brothers Of The Four Corners is a serious book with comedic overtones. There are elements of insanity combined with rivetting action/adventure sequences. The novel juggles a variety of issues simultaneously like: a family gone wrong; mans loneliness and alienation; religious intolerance; financial charlatanism and racketeering; racism in the guise of humanitarianism; and international espionage. In the end, these elements intertwine toward a twisted end. This makes for a really good read that will take you on a journey thats never boring.
