The Other Brother

The Other Brother is a film about the ‘genetics’ of art and sibling estrangement. The subject is art but the story is universal. Two brothers, estranged since 1948, share an exceptional bond. One is an art-world insider, and one lived alone in a world of art.

 The younger brother, Tom Flowers (who is now 85), received his undergraduate degree from Furman University and his MFA from the University of Iowa. He returned to Furman University for a 35-year teaching career in painting, during twenty-five of which he served as Chair of the Art Department.

  The older brother, Jesse Flowers, joined the service right after dropping out of high school and became a recluse soon after serving as a medic during the end of WWII. He lived in a dirt-floor shack without plumbing. The only visitors he allowed were his mother and, after her passing, his sisters.

 Tom Flowers, his son, artist Mark Flowers, and Mark's wife, artist and filmmaker Kristy Higby talk with Dr. Edgar about The Other Brother.

Pat Conroy and Family - The Death of Santini

(Originally broadcast 04/18/14) - In his 2013 memoir, The Death of Santini: The Story of a Father and his Son (Nan A. Talese/Doubleday) author Pat Conroy admits that his father, Don, is the basis of abusive fighter pilot he created for the title role of his novel, The Great Santini, and that his mother, Peg, and his brothers and sisters have all served as models for characters in The Prince of Tides and his other novels. Now, for the first time, Pat gathers with four of his surviving siblings, Kathy, Tim, Mike, and Jim, to talk about the intersection of “real life” and Pat’s fiction, and what it was like to grow up with “the Great Santini” as a father.
