Product description

Review

This is cracking. Original, honest voices and a vivid portrayal of a London rarely seen in literature (Paula Hawkins)

What a voice. What an ear for language. No mean feat to capture the street, the nuance of black experience, the architecture of so many different lives. It's a brave and original piece of work (Kit de Waal, author of THE TRICK TO TIME)

A riotous hymn to urban life... passionate, compelling (Guardian)

Guy Gunaratne throws words against the wall and makes us watch them bounce. You feel the heat, reel from the sound, and bump to the unstoppable pulse. A novel so of this moment that you don't even realize you've waited your whole life for it. (Marlon James, author of A BRIEF HISTORY OF SEVEN KILLINGS)

A vivid and affecting account of estate life, both blighted by frustration and elevated by dreams we can all recognise and share. Guy's characters are drawn with compassion and flair, and I was captivated by their humanity (Stephen Kelman, author of PIGEON ENGLISH)

A blazing, swaggering, polyphonic debut. Here is London through the eyes of those 'with elsewhere in their blood'. Gunaratne has a ventriloquist's command of voice, a film-maker's eye, and talent to burn (Simon Wroe, author of HERE COMES TROUBLE)

A timely read, addressing the urgent questions of our divided society. We're sure Guy is set for big things (Metro)

A blistering debut unlike anything I've read before. This is a powerful, raw, yet heartrending account of 48 hours on a London estate (BBC.co.uk)

Gritty, grotesque; graceful and beautiful. This is the London that we call home (J J Bola)

This novel is a love letter to the language of London's streets and to its people, but also a blistering look at a city on the edge that'll sweep you up until you reach the book's breathless, devastating conclusion (Stylist)

Book Description

IN OUR MAD AND FURIOUS CITY follows three young men on a London council estate over two days when suddenly everything is at stake
