Announced last month at City Hall, Six Metres of Pavement by Farzana Doctor is the people’s choice for One Book One Brampton: the subject of “a Book Club for half a million people,” as Mayor Jeffrey noted in her remarks at the event.

  1. Six Metres digs deep, urging you to discover a person’s inner turmoil and kindness before making any kind of judgement. Farzana shows how a person can be alone in a big city and how it is also possible to make life-changing connections if you just make the effort to reach out. Loved it!

  2. I have read all four books that were in the running for One Brampton and although they were all good, I think ‘Six Metres….’ is the best choice that will please the most people. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and felt it was a realistic portrayal of how humans struggle to belong and make sense of life.
    As one friend said “it’s a slice of life” and I think that’s the best way to describe the book. Also, it reminds me of the old adage, “the hardest person to forgive is one’s self”.
    Thanks Brampton Library for giving Bramptonians the opportunity to read and discuss this excellent book.
