Goat Brothers, published by Doubleday in 1993, examined the lives of Colton and a select group of his fraternity brothers at the University of California from their college days in the early 1960s until the end of the 1980s. A main selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club, Goat Brothers was described in Entertainment Weekly as "engaging" and "compulsively readable." Publishers Weekly said of the book "Colton powerfully tells the stories of the five men's search for self-worth, their difficulty in communicating their feelings, and their anger toward women.
Lawrence Robert Colton (born June 8, 1942), a one-time professional baseball player, is a writer and educator in Portland, Oregon, United States. Signed as a pitcher by the Philadelphia Phillies in 1964, Colton played college ball at the University of California, where he still holds the single game strikeout record (19). In 1965, he married Denise Loder, daughter of the actress Hedy Lamarr. A shoulder separation ended his big league career after a single appearance in relief for the Phillies.
