9781518696633: City Jungles: A Tale of the Inner City

In this work of contemporary British fiction be drawn into the urban crime drama of the lives of the men at war in the shadows of London's inner city, where war and peace are dealt in drugs and guns, and every day becomes a struggle for survival. When Anthony Spencer was growing up, his family was more well-off than some, but still the pressures of poverty, the need to have what everybody else has and to live that dream life took their toll and pushed him deeper into the life favoured by gangsters, who built their reputations through urban crime amid the constant tension of war and peace with the police. In and out of prison from the age of sixteen, his life never followed what might be called 'the straight and narrow'. Instead, he makes a living from crime drama and the crack cocaine addicts, whose numbers seem to grow as late-nineties London erupts into territorial gun violence. But amidst this escalating war in the shadows, and barely six months since his last prison sentence ended, Anthony finds himself drawn ever deeper into the world of British gangsters, until he himself becomes the victim of drugs. With no money and a growing family to provide for, he must turn once again to crime drama and hope that he will not be caught. When will the turning point come for this denizen of London's inner city, and when it does come, will it be soon enough to make a legitimate life for himself and his family? A masterwork of contemporary British fiction, 'City Jungles' captures the hard lives of men at war in a different kind of way, willing to fight and die for their families and for their civil rights.
