9781447283164: All Involved
Rezension:

All Involved is a symphonic, pitch-perfect, superlative novel. It is visceral and adrenalin-fuelled, yet tender and even darkly comic. It is audacious, unflinching and subversive. It doesn't judge. It swallowed me whole. (David Mitchell, author of CLOUD ATLAS and THE BONE CLOCKS)

Do not resist All Involved. It's the most compelling, moving, shocking and world-expanding novel you'll read all year; it sucks you in, then spits you out, permanently changed. I loved it with a frankly scary evangelical zeal. (Charlotte Mendelson, Orange Prize-shortlisted author of WHEN WE WERE BAD and ALMOST ENGLISH)

A high-octane speedball of a read: gritty, nerve-racking, sometimes excruciating in its violence and at the same time animated by a bone-deep understanding of its characters' daily lives. . . All Involved has the verbal ardor of a Richard Price novel, the pungent verisimilitude of Sanyika Shakur's riveting 1993 memoir of gang life . . . and the choral energy of a Rashomon-style documentary (Michiko Kakutani New York Times)

All Involved is a monumental achievement. Ryan Gattis takes the reader into the broken, outraged heart of Los Angeles during the `92 riots and doesn't blink once at what he finds there. (Dennis Lehane, author of SHUTTER ISLAND)

Corrosive, timely, vividly realized scenes of urban warfare and thwarted dreams by a writer who clearly knows his subject: the netherworld of Los Angeles in the early 1990's. (Joyce Carol Oates, author of THEM and BLONDE)

All Involved is an astounding, vital novel. LA riots, 1992, brought to life with scorching intensity and empathy (Matt Haig, author of THE HUMANS)

Full of brutality with flashes of tenderness, this is an adrenaline-fulled, roller-coaster ride of a novel. Hold on tight. (Cathy Rentzenbrink The Bookseller)

All Involved is a high-octane, polyphonic narrative that hit me with the force of a nuclear strike. It is a scorching, bowl-along book with fierce integrity and I heartily recommend it to all who like compelling committed fiction (Patrick McCabe, author of THE BUTCHER BOY)

Shocking, visceral and humane, All Involved is a perfectly-paced, heart-breaking portrait of a city tearing itself apart. Gattis has created characters who live on in the imagination long after you have read the final page. (Paula Hawkins, author of THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN)

A tour de force . . . without glamorising his subject, there's a lyricism in the vernacular and street language that makes it hard not to be moved . . . a powerful work of fiction ( GQ)

Powerful. . . All Involved creates a vivid picture of a world slowly being broken apart, put through the wringer and pieced together again ( South African Sunday Times)

Poignant, fierce and often graphically brutal ( USA Today)
