Item description for Brothers: The Oldest, the Quietest, the Realest, the Farthest, the Nicest, the Fastest, & I by Bart Moeyaert, Wanda Boeke & Gerda Dendooven...
Every month Bart Moeyaert writes a story about his six older brothers and himself in Nieuw Wereldtijdschrift, a magazine about literature and culture. He adapted these stories for the theater in a one-man show in which Bart plays himself. Brothers consists of forty-two of these stories which recount the adventures and misadventures of Bart's childhood as the youngest of seven brothers. In one episode he is told he can't get on a crowded boat, only to watch it sink under the weight of his siblings. Another recounts the first time he gets big news before his brothers and can't understand why they are impressed when he proudly announces their beloved grandmother's death. These stories are written with the tenderness and clarity that is the trademark of Moeyaert's fiction.
