Red Alexander’s sons believe they know him. He is a quick-tempered brick mason, a truth-bending baseball addict, and, in the eyes of his two eldest sons—Dale and Brett—a justly convicted killer. Only younger brother Scott knows the truth about the defining event that shaped all of their lives. Now, as the brothers struggle to become adults, they confront the father who for so long has worked to hold the family together by manipulating his sons’ perceptions of the past.

Review:

"Spencer's prose is as firmly rooted in realism as it is fantastical, stringing together both the hard, cold facts and surreal symbolism in a way that is beautiful, elegant, and so very humanizing. When we read The Brick Mason's Sons, we're glimpsing our friends, our relatives, and ourselves, and we're seeing each one through each other's eyes." --Scott Waldyn, editor-in-chief of Literary Orphans
 

"The cocksure fathers and sons and brothers in Spencer's book play like Piedmont-bred descendants of Larry McMurtry's bull-headed boys in Horseman, Pass By. And where McMurtry's ornery Texans hide their tensions in bar fights and bull rides, Spencer's men bind their lives up in the baseballs and basketballs that so often stand in for southern pride. They're real men of quiet desperation, with private pathos literally written on their skin." --Stephen Brower, Easy Sound Recording Co.
