Red Laal

Red Laal

‘Another gangster with all the presence of a ghost. Just stories you hear over the years. Heavyweight. King shit. Bad arse. Red Laal… If there did exist a Pakistani Don Corleone, then this was him.’ M Y Alam’s Bradford noir.

Red Army Faction Blues

Red Army Faction Blues

‘As a work of historical fiction, Wilson’s prose is artfully light of touch where exposition is concerned. Concise summaries of ideas—from Situationism to the writings of Marcuse—fit naturally into the dialogue of his young revolutionary characters … As a novel that is willing to both engage with radical politics and explore postmodern literary form, Red Army Faction Blues is a highly commendable work, audaciously conceived and well executed.’ – The Review of Contemporary Fiction

‘If this doesn’t win awards, then there is no justice. But that’s the whole point, isn’t it?’ – Artscene

Jack and Sal
