David Chariandy in conversation with Reni Eddo-Lodge
Wednesday 19th September 18:30 at London - Piccadilly
Brother by David Chariandy is a timely, essential novel that tells the tale of brothers Francis and Michael. Coming of age in the outskirts of a sprawling city, the brothers battle against careless prejudices and low expectations. Lovingly detailing the love and relationship between a mother and sons, Brother carefully builds on the impact of race, masculinity and the senseless loss of young lives to devastating effect.
Brother is David's first novel to be published in the UK and has won the Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize and was longlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize.
'A breath-taking achievement. It is a compulsive, brutal and flawless novel that is full of accomplished storytelling with not a word spare' - Observer.
David will be in conversation with award-winning journalist and author Reni Eddo-Lodge. Reni is best known for her British Book Award-winning title Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race. A collection of pieces exploring race and racism within the UK, Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race discusses the influence of black history, white dominance and the links between class and race.
