Brother by David Chariandy, is a story that takes place in Scarborough near the Rouge Valley about two brothers, Michael and Francis. The book is both familiar (about the low expectations that others have for the two brothers based on the colour of their skin) and heartbreaking (in that it seems there is no way out of the cycle of low hopes, dreams and eventual poverty for the family).
As an active resident of Scarborough I have seen (and experienced some) the same things that Michael and Francis have.
A great book for everyone living in Toronto and those who don’t but live in places where the shadows are both inviting and scary.
