Inhaltsangabe: "The Brother," the second book in Manfreds Wanderlust trilogy, continues the singularly vivid story begun in the first book, "The Primitive."
"The Brother" tells of giant Thurs Wraldsons adventures after leaving college. Orphaned and penniless, he wanders over the country, Chicago, Cleveland, New York, looking for a home.
Determined to forget the arts, determined to control what has so far been for him a tragic power and to do something practical for his brother, the common man, he at last gets a job in a New Jersey factory. There working conditions and the plight of worker friends finds him involved in union organization and then in a strike.
Factory life does not satisfy him, however, and he soon moves on to New York City, where he takes a job in a warehouse and in his spare time takes up sketching and painting. Here he meets the intelligentsia of his time: artists, free lovers, liberals, renegades, parlor pinks, Marxists.
Thurs also makes new friends: among the men, lonesome Black Jack Hammer, the owner of the factory; fierce Fritz Blutschwert, the dogmatic Marxist; gentle Malcolm Makepeace, the practical Marxist; bitter-eyed Rex Kinst, the friendless huckster; moderist Pece Roche, the mixed up artist; among the women, tormented Rhoda Stuyvesant Hammer, the debutante who collected geniuses; mysterious Miss Sabine, the sculptress who collected male heads
