9780062378798: All Involved

For six days, Los Angeles is a city ablaze. For six days, seventeen people are caught in the chaos. For six days, Los Angeles shows the world what happens when laws are no longer enforceable. Ernesto Vera is walking home from his job at a taco truck when three guys jump out of a car and assault him. Ernesto's not in a gang, he's not involved, but his sister is - and when Payasa hears that her innocent brother has been murdered, she wants revenge. As widespread rioting breaks out across the city, Ernesto's death triggers an astonishing sequence of events, not just for the gangs involved, but for the firefighters, nurses and law enforcement who must deal with the consequences. In April 1992, after one of the most notorious, racially charged trials in American history, the city of L.A. exploded in violence. All Involved tells the interconnected stories of seventeen characters over six life-changing days, and transforms the truly extraordinary story of the L.A. riots into a vivid, electrifying and addictive work of fiction.

Product Description:

The 1992 Los Angeles Riots: six days of looting, arson, assault and murder. America's second largest city in chaos.

In All Involved, Ryan Gattis weaves a heart-stopping narrative from the perspectives of characters whose stories of the riots were never told. In six sections, each covering a single day, we follow the intersecting lives of seventeen people: gang members, firefighters, nurses, law enforcement officers and graffiti artists, every one changed for ever.

Though the events of All Involved are fictional, every word is infused with authenticity and intimacy. A propulsive and ambitious novel as electrifying as the television series The Wire, this is a mesmerizing epic of crime and opportunity, race, revenge and loyalty.

Review:

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)

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)

Book Description Ecco Press, United States, 2015. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 231 x 163 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A propulsive and ambitious novel as electrifying as The Wire, from a writer hailed as the West Coast s Richard Price--a mesmerizing epic of crime and opportunity, race, revenge, and loyalty, set in the chaotic streets of South Central L.A. in the wake of one of the most notorious and incendiary trials of the 1990s At 3:15 p.m. on April 29, 1992, a jury acquitted three white Los Angeles Police Department officers charged with using excessive force to subdue a black man named Rodney King, and failed to reach a verdict on the same charges involving a fourth officer. Less than two hours later, the city exploded in violence that lasted six days. In nearly 121 hours, fifty-three lives were lost. But there were even more deaths unaccounted for: violence that occurred outside of active rioting sites by those who used the chaos to viciously settle old scores. A gritty and cinematic work of fiction, All Involved vividly re-creates this turbulent and terrifying time, set in a sliver of Los Angeles largely ignored by the media during the riots. Ryan Gattis tells seventeen interconnected first-person narratives that paint a portrait of modern America itself--laying bare our history, our prejudices, and our complexities. With characters that capture the voices of gang members, firefighters, graffiti kids, and nurses caught up in these extraordinary circumstances, All Involved is a literary tour de force that catapults this edgy writer into the ranks of such legendary talents as Dennis Lehane and George V. Higgins. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780062378798
