"A fascinating and important book - a biography, it is as compelling as a fine novel, is packed with deep emotional appeals, strong humor, and convincing characterizations, and more than any other single book I know tells what Southern life is like on the rough side, where the lath and plaster have not been smoothed off, including matters of daily bread, race, and the belief in Jesus Christ." - Robert Penn Warren "Evokes Mark Twain ... Part biography, part philosophy, and in all, an anecdotal feast. Brother to a Dragonfly becomes in the reading of it a factor in all our lives." - Jules Feiffer "A very well-written, touching book." - David Halberstam "Will Campbell's life has been one of helping us lay down the burden of race ... His spirit and his superb writing make Brother to a Dragonfly stand out among memoirs of the Movement." - Hon. John Lewis "With pure earthy simplicity, Will Campbell has painted a masterpiece." - Jessi Coulter and Waylon Jennings "Will Campbell has a Southern capacity for nostalgia, and evokes it delicately but to strong purpose ... The two brothers' lives become mythic for the reader." - Robert Coles Brother to a Dragonfly is a fascinating mix of memories, vivid anecdotes, poignant stories, and portraits of interesting people .Brother to a Dragonfly has lost none of its zip and bravado over the years. Campbell s memoir is an emotionally charged account of the deep bonds between two brothers and the demons both had to struggle to exorcise. It also presents an idiosyncratic and very needed approach to the spiritual practices of compassion and justice. - Reviewed by Cultural Information Service

Reseña del editor:

Will CampbellÆs award-winning book shares two interrelated stories. One is of his youth in rural Mississippi and his devotion to his brother whose life ended in seeming tragedy. The other tells of his ordination at age 17 and gradual realization that civil rightsùfor blacks, for women, for gays ùwas an essential part of a ministry that has not yet ended.
