Naked City

A collection of stories by

At the heart of the modern city we find stories of lovers, stories of people with a desire to connect to someone else, something else. This collection reveals the experience of living through changing times, of people shaking the past and dreaming of better days, people finding their place, adapting to new surroundings, laughing and forgetting, living and loving in the grip of the city. Perhaps there are eight million stories in the naked city. Here are just a few of them. Also included is a selection of the very best in new short fiction in a bonus section, This Could Be Anywhere.

Naked City (Route 15) is a title in the Route Series of Contemporary Stories.

'Gleamed from the length and breadth of the UK, these stories do not disappoint. There is a grittiness to these tales, variously dealing in love, and fading or faded dreams and a commendable lack of adornment and sentimentality in a well-chosen collection.' - The Glasgow Herald

'If you want to keep abreast of current reflections on social and sexual change and expose yourself to some top-quality storytelling, this is the book for you.' - Juice Magazine

'The eclectic, the humorous, the heartbreaking, the psychological, the fear and angst are all here in a collection that not only embodies the city but occupies the very soul of the urban landscape.' - Inc Writers
