Introducing a major literary voice. this beautiful, timely novel explores love betweenbrothers, between an immigrant family stretched to breaking point and thesenseless loss of lives cut short
We were losers and neighbourhood schemers. We were the children of the help, withoutfutures. We were, none of us, what our parents wanted us to be. We were not what anyother adults wanted us to be. We were nobodies, or else, somehow, a city.
Michael and Francis are the bright, ambitious sons of trinidadian immigrants. Comingof age in the outskirts of a sprawling city, the brothers battle against careless prejudicesand lowexpectations. While Francis aspires to a future in music, Michael dreams ofAisha, 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 cutshort.
