Formidably intelligent and tenacious. A tour de force of regulated passion. (Martin Amis)

This is Gary Younge's masterwork. You will never read news reports about gun violence the same way again. Brilliantly reported, quietly indignant and utterly gripping. A book to be read through tears. (Naomi Klein)

This book is a righteous challenge to the big insanities of American society; gun ubiquity, racism, poverty and the supine and bland media which taboos genuine discourse on them. It's all the more daring and subversive for its controlled and mannered tone, as it breaks the unwritten law: thou shall not humanize the victims of this ongoing carnage. (Irvine Welsh)

Another Day in the Death of America is a harrowing account of children's lives cut short by the ubiquity of violence in the United States. Drawn from suburbs and cities of every demographic, these sensitively researched portraits of virtually unknown victims and their grieving families expose the structural ties of race, class, and lack of gun control. Younge's book completes the picture of what violence looks like in contemporary America. (Claudia Rankine)

An extremely powerful book, and one that I think should be pushed into the hands of many. (Jen Campbell, author and booktuber)

24 hours. 8 states. 10 young lives lost to gun violence. A moving portrait of childhood and youth in contemporary American, by award-winning Guardian writer.
