Brother by David Chariandy
Brother is the story of two brothers raised by a single Trinidadian mother in a housing complex in Toronto in the early ‘90s. This slim but powerful novel tackles race, masculinity, police violence, poverty, and family, all with incredible precision and depth. This novel won the 2017 Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize.
