Overview

City by James Roy is the companion short story collection to the highly successful and award - winning book, Town, published by UQP in 2007. The only water out this way is the river and the reservoir and the twin pipes that feed the city. Huge and dark, each as thick through as a small car, they rise and fall across the plains towards the glowing sky and the shimmering skyline. In his acclaimed collection, 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.
