Another Day in the Death of America
A Chronicle of Ten Short LivesBook - 2016
On an average day in America, seven young people aged nineteen or under will be shot dead. Younge chose November 23, 2013, with ten such deaths, and over a period of twenty-four hours reveals the powerful human stories behind the statistics. The result is a gripping chronicle of an ordinary but deadly day in American life, and a series of character portraits of young people taken from us far too soon and those they left behind.
From the critics
QuotesAdd a Quote
This is not a book about race, though a disproportionate number off those who fell that day were black, and certain racial themes are unavoidable. It is not a book that sets out to compare the United States unfavourably with Britain, though it is written by a Briton to whom gun culture is alien. Finally, it is not a book about gun control; it is a book made possible by the absence of gun control.
