Issued on: Modified:
It's been called the "London book of our lifetime". Multi award-winning novelist Guy Gunaratne talks to Eve Jackson about his stunning debut "In Our Mad and Furious City". It unfolds over 48 hours during a summer of unrest, beginning when an off-duty soldier is murdered by a black man on a London council estate, an echo of the murder of soldier Lee Rigby in 2013.
