The Brothers Silver Book Cover
“All the elements were flawless: the characters, the setting, the narrative, the dialogue. This book had a strong opening that instantly put me in a trance, compelling characters that are multifaceted, an absorbing story that pierced through my soul, and sharp dialogues that spoke of the characters’ different perception and personalities.”
“Jampole’s experimentation is an intriguing way to stretch the novel form. Readers who are willing to put in a bit of work to digest the meandering poetic style will enjoy its freshness. There’s plenty to chew on for anyone curious about the impact of dysfunctional families on children who make it to adulthood. ”
“Marc Jampole is a terrific storyteller. ”
The Brothers Silver … represents a new high-water mark in the history of novels written by men concerning the impact of childhood trauma and the strategies necessary to cope with or survive that trauma as an adult … Jampole’s deep and intense interest in the possibilities inherent in the use of the English language is evident from the very first page. His use of rhyme and rhythm to capture voice is riveting as is his turn to dramatic dialogue. ”
“The Brothers Silver requires patience and persistence, but an adventurous reader will find much to entertain and provoke. ”
