From burning riots to close shaves Images of the 1992 LA riots were beamed across the world as six days of violence left a city bruised and broken. In All Involved, Ryan Gattis concocts a novel from separate voices of those whose story wasn't told. The 1976 attempted murder of Bob Marley is the starting point for A Brief History of Seven Killings, Marlon James' multi-character tale featuring ghosts, beauty queens and Keith Richards' drug dealer.
