In a world where tower blocks are stone mountains and city walls are urban tapestries retelling epic fights, Michael keeps away from the warring tribes until a passer by helps him out of a tight situation.Instantly, he is pulled into the gang culture he has tried to escape.
The city spirals out of control as battle lines are drawn but will Michael succeed in ending the war?
In rhythmic, sizzling poetry, and with a live soundtrack from drummer Aki Fujimoto and flautist Mikey Kirkpatrick, Inua Ellams conjures the violence of a city not unlike London and imagines a more beautiful world beyond it.
