City PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

City free pdf City is the companion short story collection to the highly successful and award-wining book, Town. In Town, James Roy used the short story to chart the social tapestry of a country town as seen through the eyes of thirteen young residents. The young people in City are linked in very different ways - through chance meetings, found objects, social connections, the civil disobedience of the shadowy Poet and the streets of a city. Like the town in its companion collection, this place has no name. But any reader who has ever lived in a city will find it immediately familiar. A striking collection of connected stories that reflect our lives and those of the people that we pass each day.
