THE BROTHER, the second book in Manfred's World's Wanderer trilogy, continues the singularly vivid story begun in the first book, THE PRIMITIVE. THE BROTHER tells of giant Thurs Wraldson's adventures after leaving college. Orphaned and penniless, he wanders over the country, Chicago, Cleveland, New York, looking for a home. Determined to forget the arts, determined to control what has so far been for him a tragic power and to do something practical for his brother, the common man, he at last gets a job in a New Jersey factory. There working conditions and the plight of worker friends involves him in union organization and then in a strike. Factory life does not satisfy him, however, and he soon moves on to New York City, where he takes a job in a warehouse and in his spare time takes up sketching and painting. Here he meets the intelligentsia of his time: artists, free lovers, liberals, renegades, parlor pinks, and Marxists. THE BROTHER, written in typically compelling Manfred prose, follows THE PRIMITIVE as the second installment of a powerful chronicle of social turmoil. The third book, THE GIANT, completes the Wraldson cycle. Decades after the trilogy's publication, Manfred combined all three books into a single volume entitled WANDERLUST, which is also available from Vivisphere.World's Wanderer The Primitive/Book One, with ISBN 9781892323613 and ISBN 1892323613.
