Stephen Kelman recommends
The Letters of Ivor Punch (2015)
"A truly original and enthralling novel. Ivor Punch is a magnificent creation and his story is mischievous, sad, funny and truthful."
In Our Mad and Furious City (2018)
"A vivid and affecting account of estate life, both blighted by frustration and elevated by dreams we can all recognise and share. Guy's characters are drawn with compassion and flair, and I was captivated by their humanity."
