In 1968, nineteen-year-old Peter David Berger was found with a knife in his heart, dead in the bedroom of a friend's house in Montreal. The police dismissed him as a hippie and his death was ruled an LSD-induced suicide. Nomi Berger was twenty-three when her brother died, and she spent the next twenty-seven years running from his ghost and attempting to exorcise it through her poetry and fiction. Then, in 1995, she suddenly stopped running and decided to re-open her past's deepest, unhealed wound. She set out to uncover the truth about her brother -- and about herself.My Brother Peter is the story of Nomi Berger's Journey to reclaim the brother she lost, and to purge herself of her own, powerful guilt. This book will shock the reader, and tear at the heart, for it is an exquisitely poignant testament to love, obsession and liberation, and a cautionary tale as well, a look back at the sixties, when so many of a generation's best and brightest lost their way in the Garden.
