Ryan Gattis at Jura Unbound, Edinburgh International Book Festival

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.
