It was on a family trip. My father and Uncle Pete were in one car, with Ken and my oldest brother, Paul, in the wide backseat. Following in the next car was my mother, who was driving, and Aunt Helen and my two sisters. My father and uncle got involved in conversation and weren't watching the boys. Nor did the men notice that the doors were unlocked. Apparently Ken grew restless and decided to experiment with the door handle.
So, driving along a two-lane highway at sixty miles an hour, my mother sees my two brothers fly out of the car ahead of her. She swerved, my sisters say, to avoid the boys as they rolled on the pavement.

Summary: "Out of love, anger, and grief Clifford Chase has crafted a moving memoir of loss and family bonds. With startling intensity, he evokes scenes of life in a suburban American family and illuminates the strong ties that are woven between two gay brothers as they become adults. Chase documents how, in turn, the family dynamics change forever when one brother - the elder, the admired, the feared, the loved - grows ill and dies.
