Jared Pappas-Kelley: The Last Book I Loved, Branwell


Douglas A. Martin’s Branwell is a novel that bleeds the line between novel and historical fact.

It’s written in a style that traces the tragic story of Branwell Brontë—the lesser known brother in the Brontë family—and composites it through the lives of those involved, from golden child and hope of the family to drunken dissolute, all while the politics of family allegiance drift and Branwell falls further into oblivion.
