I was shamelessly happy to read the review of "Brothers" in People magazine, which gave the book four stars and its "Critic's Choice" button. I know that I'm going to get roughed up in some quarters for my unconventional interpretation of the Kennedy saga. Hey, "writing is fighting," as Ishmael Reed says. But it's nice to get some bouquets.
