Graeme Armstrong is from Airdrie. Inspired by the gang experiences of his youth, The Young Team is an energetic novel, full of the loyalty, laughs, mischief, boredom, violence and threat of life on those streets. It looks beyond the tabloid stereotypes to tell a powerful story about the realities of life for young people in Britain today.
In the interconnected stories in The Quarry by Ben Halls we meet the men living on the Quarry Lane estate. These are men at work, at the pub, at home, with their families, lovers and friends, grappling with addiction, sexuality and the corrosive effects of toxic masculinity.
