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:
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.
