Excellent stories--something sharp in every one. ( )
  AThurman | Dec 7, 2014 |
This Is Not Your City is an itty little book, but packs a punch. I have been having trouble getting into the modern short story of late, but Ms. Horrocks offerings certainly stood their own. Each story gives us a glimpse of a woman lost in her own life. Some are quite conventional in form, while others delve into magical realism and experiment with format in surprisingly moving ways. A couple, such as the title entry, lose themselves in contrivance, but as a whole we have here some beautiful, dark, and very funny writing. ( )

Eleven women confront dramas both every-day and outlandish in stories as darkly comic as they are unflinching.
