Book Report: Brother

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.

Episode #118: Toronto – Chapter 1 – Introduction

Gregg Tilston and Karim Kanji both love Toronto. And maybe they have to because they live here.

Gregg has literally traveled the world but still calls Toronto the best city in the world. Karim has travelled much less and has seen places around the world that “do things better” than Toronto.

What does a day in the life of Gregg (one partner, 2 dogs) and Karim (one partner, one kid) look like? How do they interact with the people and environment around them? How do they interact with the City of Toronto?

This is the first in an ongoing series about life in Toronto. What we love about the city. And what we hate.
