Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
Two boys from profoundly different backgrounds--John William Barry, the wealthy scion of two elite Seattle families, and the blue-collar Irish Neil Countryman--brought together by their fierce love of the natural world, grow up to pursue vastly different paths in life, Neil as a devoted schoolteacher, and John William, a recluse seeking refuge in the wilderness. Simultaneous.
"THE OTHER is a moving portrait of male friendship, the kind that forms on the cusp of adulthood and refuses to die....It's also a finely observed rumination on the necessary imperfection of life--on how hypocrisy, compromise and acceptance creep into our lives and turn strident idealists into kind, loving, fully human adults."
Bruce Barcott, New York Times Book Review, 06/15/2008
