‘Controlled and fearless perfection’ - The Washington Post Jamaica Kincaid’s brother Devon died of Aids on 19 January 1996 at the age of 33. This poetic and shockingly candid recounting of her brother’s life and death is also the story of her family in Antigua - centred round her destructive mother - and a portrait of an illness misunderstood. From one of today’s most iconic writers, My Brother is a remarkable record of a life that ended too early. It speaks to the difficult truths at the heart of all families.
