Description

'Alex Wheatle writes from a place of honesty and passion' Steve McQueen, director of Small Axe East of Acre Lane is the fast-paced and razor sharp story of a young man trying to do the right thing from celebrated author Alex Wheatle, one of the figures who inspired Steve McQueen's Small Axe It is 1981, and Brixton is on the verge of exploding.

Biscuit lives with his mother, brother and sister, trapped hustling on the frontline for the South London badman Nunchucks.

As the patience of the community breaks and the riots erupt, Biscuit must make a choice that could change his life forever. 'His prose is as sharp as a barber's cutthroat and the hard edged dialogue perfectly captures that London vibe.

Thrilling, very funny, and most of all a page turner' Courttia Newland
