Brother by David Chariandy (11/52)

The depth of bond between brothers is explored in Chariandy’s beautiful, breathing book. Michael and ill-fated Francis are connected, yet disparate. Chariandy paints a setting that is suffocating and palpable. The Scarborough that skirts the underpasses and exists in the spaces nobody sees. I was completed caught up in this novel and the slow reveal of what happened. The subtlety and nuance of storytelling is on display. Excellent read.
