Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Passion, intimacy, and family love propel this masterful, suitably impressionistic portrait…Thorough familiarity with the brothers’ copious correspondence, sensitivity and originality in reading it, and alertness to the imaginative afterlife of seemingly simple exchanges make this revelatory, compulsive reading. Highly recommended.” Toronto Star
“Narrator Phil Fox weaves facts and anecdotes with aplomb as he delivers the biographies of brothers Vincent and Theo van Gogh. Fox’s delivery is crisp and precise, a style that goes well with the present-tense writing. The audiobook has the structure of a walk through an art gallery, and Fox helps listeners enter the scenes…Fox’s narration makes the story and its time period clear.” AudioFile
“A remarkably insightful, profoundly moving story of fraternal interdependence and unconditional love.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
A unique and riveting exploration of art, artists, and brotherly love.” Horn Book (starred review)
“Heiligman delivers an exquisitely told, heartfelt portrayal of that deep emotional and intellectual bond.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“Heiligman’s writing is evocative; it is lyrical, and the scenes seem like paintings. She deftly explores the characters’ inner lives and gives insight into the attitude people of the day had about mental illness.” VOYA
Through their own correspondence, Heiligman plumbs the relationship between Vincent van Gogh and his art-dealer brother, Theo. Highlighting key moments in the brothers’ turbulent lives, this impeccably researched book gives the van Goghs compelling depth.” Booklist
