About this title


Brother Sid is a fictional account of the bright, abbreviated life of iconic southern poet Sidney Lanier. From college he is sent to war, and from war to prison. Afterward, neither Reconstruction nor broken romance derails him for long. Lanier juggles ill health, poverty and great promise by balancing on his friends and the remarkable gifts God gave him. Decades later, a woman in her final days sees Sidney Lanier as a man worth remembering for his steadfast pursuit of improbable dreams, some of which even came true.

About the Author:

She later worked for the Summit County (Colorado) Sentinel, the Fairhope (Alabama) Courier and the Montgomery Advertiser. She left the newspaper business and operated an advertising copywriting firm for 20 years. Brother Sid is Lamar's first published novel. She is also the co-author of the highly popular non-fiction work, Hunting: The Southern Tradition. She resides in Montgomery.
