Editorial Reviews


Review by Amy RainesA Sliver of a Chance: Insights and Observations of a Canadian Immigrant by Brian Sankarsingh contains some true and moving emotions. From politics, racism, segregation, and slavery to doing everything humanly possible to provide for a family, this book has it all. The fear of the stigmas brought on by anxiety, depression, and mental disorders. The pain and anger of racism that has been taken so lightly that it has become lost on deaf ears or completely misunderstood. Fighting for the right to drop guns or bear arms, losing so many people to COVID-19, and the poor getting poorer while everyone else hoards, complains, and refuses to do the right thing. This poetry book covers centuries-past history to modern-day truths.

Brian Sankarsingh is a poet I would love to see a lot more work from. A Sliver of a Chance: Insights and Observations of a Canadian Immigrant is an amazing work of verbal art that will fill the reader with emotions concerning each topic. The beauty and truth in every single line are made up of a pure emotional commitment to humanity in the way society has treated so many issues with blatant disregard and sometimes disdain. The poetry in this volume is nothing like anything else you will see in other books. The words are not always formed to rhyme perfectly which in turn makes the work perfectly unique and interesting. I love how all of the poems give deep insight into each and every topic covered. From migration in colonial times, slavery, depression, anxiety, and the coronavirus, this poet has covered it all! I recommend this volume to anyone, even those that do not like poetry, and look forward to many more volumes by Sankarsingh!

About the Author

Brian Sankarsingh is a Trinidadian-born Canadian immigrant who describes himself as an accidental poet, with a passion for advocacy and a penchant for prose. Arriving in Canada in the 1980s, Brian worked tirelessly to forge a life and career for himself. In so doing, he inadvertently shrouded his love for poetry. Now, with his children all grown up, he has rediscovered his voice.

With renewed vigour and an unapologetic style, Sankarsingh is committed to maddeningly screaming his poetic ponderings from whatever rooftop or soapbox he can find. Wading into controversial topics like systemic racism and politics, Sankarsingh's readers should think about his poetry as social and political commentary.... --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
