"Dionne Brand delves into uncharted aspects of urban life, the bittersweetness of youth, and secrets families try to hide. Tuyen is an aspiring artist and the daughter of Vietnamese parents who've never recovered from losing one of their children while in the rush to flee Vietnam in the 1970s. She rejects her immigrant family's hard-won lifestyle, and instead lives in a rundown apartment with friends - each of whom is grappling with their own familial complexities and heartache." "Tuyen's lost brother - who has since become a criminal in the Thai underworld - journeys to Toronto to find his long-lost family. As Quy's arrival nears, tensions build, friendships are tested, and an unexpected encounter will forever alter the lives of Tuyen and her friends." "Gripping at times, heartrending at others, What We All Long For is an ode to a generation of longing and identity, and to the rhythms and pulses of a city and its burgeoning, questioning youth."--Jacket

With her amazing grace and extrardinary skill, Dionne Brand has once again given us a collection of poetry both complex and unerring in its vision, intergrity, sense of history. Brand understands the vivacity of the past, the strength of ancestral voices, and integrates these in a poetry astonishing in its ability to sing to us, to move us, to make us remember. A major work by a brilliant poet. --Michelle Cliff

Ossuaries by Dionne Brand( Book )
10 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and French and held by 148 libraries worldwide
Dionne Brand's hypnotic, urgent long poem ' her first book of poetry in four years, is about the bones of fading cultures and ideas, about the living museums of spectacle where these bones are found. At the centre of Ossuaries is the narrative of Yasmine, a woman living an underground life, fleeing from past actions and regrets, in a perpetual state of movement. She leads a solitary clandestine life, crossing borders actual (Algiers, Cuba, Canada), and timeless. Cold-eyed and cynical, she contemplates the periodic crises of the contemporary world. This is a work of deep engagement, sensuality, and ultimate craft from an essential observer of our time and one of the most accomplished poets writing today. From the Trade Paperback edition

National liberation movements in the Middle East in the 1950's and 1960's held the promise of women's equality, but Arab women still face oppression. They must fight a two-front war against repressive internal restraints and Western interference. This film follows a delegation of Arab women activists (including author Nawal Saadawi) as they tour the United States, to sensitize North Americans to Arab feminism and the effects of American foreign policy. They discuss the deterioration of women's rights in the Middle East, how conservative regimes are allied to a conservative interpretation of Islam, and the Gulf War as a setback for women in the Middle East
Fierce departures : the poetry of Dionne Brand by Dionne Brand( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 111 libraries worldwide
The selections in Fierce Departures, drawn from Dionne Brand's work since 1997, delineate with searing eloquence how history marks and dislocates peoples of the African diaspora, how nations, concretely and conceptually, fail to create safe haven, and how human desire persists nevertheless. Through a widening canvas, Brand unfolds the (im)possibilities of belonging for those whom history has dispossessed. Yet she also shows how Canada, and in particular Toronto, remade by those who alight on it, is a place of contingency. Known for her linguistic intensity and lyric brilliance, Brand consoles
