City by James Roy | Book Trailer

City by James Roy | Book Trailer | YAFic | Scoop.it

"Like Town, this is another collection of short stories. But as well as being set in a different kind of environment, the ways in which the characters connect in City are different too.
The thing is that in a country town, everyone thinks they know everyone else, whereas people who live in cities will happily drive for an hour to have coffee with a friend, but won’t know the name of the lady who lives upstairs.
"And since 90 percent of us live in cities, I thought that this idea was worth thinking about." JAMES ROY
