Publisher's Summary

Michael and Francis are the bright, ambitious sons of Trinidadian immigrants. Coming of age in the outskirts of a sprawling city, the brothers battle against careless prejudices and low expectations. While Francis aspires to a future in music, Michael dreams of Aisha, 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 cut short.

We need a revolution

A powerful sensitive and moving account of the inequalities and injustices in life. Beautiful prose but not overdone. The story is recognisable to all immigrants and those from the lower strata.
David Chariandy teaches us not to make assumptions about people, not to judge but to try to understand where they come from.
