Myron Brinig, This Man Is My Brother

In 1929, Myron Brinig published the highly regarded Singermann, an autobiographical saga of a Jewish family in the United States, based on his father’s life. With This Man Is My Brother (Farrar & Rinehart, 1932), Brinig returns to the Singermann family, the successful owners of what would now be considered a department store in Silver Bow, Montana. The text concentrates on the Singermann children and is told, in part, through the eyes of one of the sons, Michael, who drives from New York to Montana to visit with his family and to gather material for his new novel.
