In Our Mad and Furious City
- By: Guy Gunaratne
- Narrated by: Ben Bailey Smith, Lou Marie Kerr
- Length: 6 hrs and 45 mins
Guy Gunaratne's blistering debut, In Our Mad and Furious City, is an unforgettable portrait of 48 hours on a London council estate. For Selvon, Ardan and Yusuf, growing up under the towers of Stones Estate, summer means what it does anywhere: football, music, freedom. But now, after the killing of a British soldier, riots are spreading across the city, and nowhere is safe. While the fury swirls around them, Selvon and Ardan remain focused on their own obsessions, girls and grime.
Excellent Subject Matter
