We Go Around in the Night and Are Consumed by Fire by Jules Grant
Voiced by Donna and her streetwise god-daughter Aurora, this thrillingly original crime novel unfolds at breakneck speed—at once furious, tender and heartbreaking.
Lesbian gangster and street poet Donna runs the all-female Bronte Close Gang. Carla, single parent and part-time MC, is her closest friend and trusted second-in-command. Together they carve out an empire in the toughest streets of Manchester. Unlike the city’s other gangs, run by men caught up in violent turf warfare, the women keep their heads down, doing business their way: partying on Canal Street, selling drugs in perfume atomisers in club toilets, and working as cleaners to account for their illegal income.
But when Carla is gunned down everything changes.
A brilliant, gritty lesbian-gangster revenge thriller.
“Original, moving and written in a blistering prose style that is thrilling to read, this book is the real, raw deal.” - Julia Bell
