Gabriel Krauze & Ryan O'Connor: Penned in the Margins

Gabriel Krauze’s Who They Was is a visceral semi-autobiographical novel about a man living in the brutal gang world of south London while also studying for a degree. Ryan O’Connor’s The Voids, set in a condemned Glasgow high-rise full of hedonistic benders and comic hallucinations, is a wild literary ride. Today, we welcome two fearless authors whose prose nods to the likes of Irvine Welsh and James Kelman. They speak to Graeme Armstrong.
