Summary
When they were children in the suburbs of Los Angeles in the 1950s, Diane Keaton and her younger brother, Randy, were best friends and companions- they shared stories at night in their bunk beds; they swam, laughed, dressed up for Halloween. Their mother captured their American-dream childhoods in her diaries, and on camera. But as they grew up, Randy became troubled, then reclusive. By the time he reached adulthood, he was divorced, an alcoholic, a man who couldn't hold on to full-time work--his life a world away from his sister's, and from the rest of their family.

Now Diane is delving into the nuances of their shared, and separate, pasts to confront the difficult question of why and how Randy ended up living his life on "the other side of normal." In beautiful and fearless prose that's intertwined with photographs, journal entries, letters, and poetry--many of them Randy's own writing and art--this insightful memoir contemplates the inner workings of a family, the ties that hold it together, and the special bond between siblings even when they are pulled far apart. Here is a story about love and responsibility- about how, when we choose to reach out to the people we feel closest to--in moments of difficulty and loss--surprising things can happen. A story with universal echoes, Brother & Sister speaks across generations to families whose lives have been touched by the fragility and "otherness" of loved ones--and to brothers and sisters everywhere.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In her best-selling memoir, Then Again (2011), Keaton portrayed her mother. What is palpable in this searing memoir of her relationship with Randy, her alcoholic, mentally skewed brother, is the sense of missed opportunity. For a brief period during their seemingly idyllic childhood in 1950s Southern California, they were a team, safe in a cocooned shared bedroom, basking in an insulated duet. But the good times didn't last. More children came, and their father achieved financial and professional success and moved the family deeper into suburbia and a lifestyle that clashed with Randy's heightened sensibilities. Keaton's acting career soared, removing her geographically but also emotionally from Randy's increased isolation, anger, frustration, and rage: emotions he assuaged through poetry, art, and alcohol. The keeper of her family's ephemera, including journals, photographs, poems, and collages, here Keaton assembles the mosaic of a supremely troubled life. In doing so, she addresses the remorse that comes from viewing broken relationships from a distance, knowing that there is no glue with which to repair them. A disarmingly honest and vulnerable account of an all-too-common family dynamic.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Keaton is a star on screen and the page, and interest will be avid for this candid look-back.--Carol Haggas Copyright 2020 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Actor Keaton (Let's Just Say It Wasn't Pretty) focuses on her complex relationship with her mentally ill younger brother in this resonant and melancholy family memoir. Keaton admits that she saw her brother, Randy, as a burden when they were kids growing up in Southern California: "He was a nuisance, a scaredy-cat, and a crybaby." As she got older, "he became an absent presence. I avoided him as my life got busier while his got smaller and more difficult." Throughout, Keaton shares details of her career (filmmakers Woody Allen and Nancy Meyers, among others, get mentions), but the focus is on Randy, an alcoholic plagued by sadomasochistic fantasies about women, and whose escalating instability--vividly described here (in a letter to Keaton, Randy writes, "When I thought about sex it was always with a knife")--affected Keaton, her parents, and her two sisters. The author, who became "the family documentarian" after her mother's death in 2008, utilizes family letters and journals to enhance the narrative, which follows Randy as he unravels and turns into a "Boo Radley character." Keaton talks about the complexities of loving a brother she never quite knew; of watching him become consumed by alcohol, then falling into the grip of dementia "in the process of dying"; and of wishing she had done more to help him ("I want to have another chance at being a better sister"). This slim but weighty book stands as a haunting meditation on mortality, sibling love, mental illness, and regret. (Feb.)"
