From the much-admired Guardian journalist comes a powerful, moving and important book on the effect of gun crime on children in the US. On Saturday 23 November 2013 ten children were shot dead. The youngest was nine; the oldest was nineteen. They fell in suburbs, hamlets and ghettos. None made the national news. It was just another day in the death of America, where on average seven children and teens are killed by guns daily. Younge picked this day at random, searched for their families and now tells their stories in Another Day in the Death of America.
‘You will never read news reports about gun violence the same way again. Brilliantly reported, quietly indignant and utterly gripping.’ Naomi Klein
