Another Day in the Death of America

by Gary Younge

From the much-admired correspondent comes a powerful, moving and important book on the effect of gun crime on children in the US.

Reviewed by Ben at Angus & Robertson Bookworld:
Another Day in the Death of America is not an easy book. There were times where I had to put it down and sit stupefied by what I'd just read. But I urge you to challenge yourself with this because beyond heartbreaking, well-composed reportage you'll be met with unparalleled insights into a phenomenon that has brought one of the greatest countries on Earth to its knees.

Guardian journalist Gary Younge has chosen not write a book about politicians, police, or lobby groups but instead to write about the end result of the gun crisis - 10 children across the country dead inside a 24-hour period. A perfectly average day. By taking the time and effort to give these deaths in-depth coverage, he circumvents the daily news cycle and its unfathomable death toll which has left much of society numb to the whole epidemic. If you read one thing about guns in America, this book should be it.
