Description

Introducing a major literary voice. This beautiful, timely novel explores love between brothers, between an immigrant family stretched to breaking point and the senseless loss of lives cut short LONGLISTED FOR THE SCOTIABANK GILLER PRIZE SHORTLISTED FOR THE ROGERS WRITERS' TRUST FICTION PRIZE Michael and Francis are the bright, ambitious sons of Trinidadian immigrants. Coming of age in The Park, a cluster of houses and towers in the disparaged outskirts of a sprawling city, the brothers battle against the careless prejudices and low expectations that confront them on a daily basis. While Francis dreams of a future in music, Michael's dreams are of Aisha, the smartest girl in their school, whose eyes are firmly set on a life elsewhere. But the bright hopes of all three are violently, irrevocably thwarted by a tragic event. Beautifully written and extraordinarily powerful, Brother is a novel of deep humanity which provides a profound insight into love, family, opportunity and grief.
