Three writers with stunning novels read gritty stories of urban cities, streetfighting men and women, packing heat and punches. Marlon James' atmospheric A Brief History of Seven Killings tells of the attempted assassination of Bob Marley; Ryan Gattis's visceral All Involved follows LA gangs after the '92 riots; and Lisa McInerney's mischievous The Glorious Heresies sees a group of misfits mishandling a murder.
