Synopsis

'A brilliant, powerful elegy from a living brother to a lost one, yet pulsing with rhythm, and beating with life' Marlon James, Winner of the Man Booker Prize



WINNER OF THE ROGERS WRITERS' TRUST FICTION PRIZE

WINNER OF THE TORONTO BOOK AWARD

LONGLISTED FOR THE ORWELL PRIZE FOR POLITICAL FICTION

LONGLISTED FOR THE SCOTIABANK GILLER PRIZE

A GUARDIAN BOOK OF THE YEAR



Michael and Francis are the bright, ambitious sons of Trinidadian immigrants. Coming of age in the outskirts of a sprawling city, the brothers battle against careless prejudices and low expectations.



While Francis aspires to a future in music, Michael dreams of Aisha, the smartest girl in their school, whose eyes are firmly set on a life elsewhere. But one sweltering summer night the hopes of all three are violently, irrevocably cut short.



In this timely and essential novel, David Chariandy builds a quietly devastating story about the love between a mother and her sons, the impact of race, masculinity and the senseless loss of young lives.
