Description

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.

Professional reviews

"“Exploring universal themes of love between brothers as well as race, masculinity and the challenges faced by immigrant families, it promises to be an enthralling and timely read.” INDEPENDENT “A brilliant, powerful elegy from a living brother to a lost one, yet pulsing with rhythm, and beating with life.” MARLON JAMES, Man Booker Prize-winning author of A Brief History of Seven Killings."
