Abstract:

Street lit, also known as urban fiction, addresses with unflinching grit the concerns and problems of city living. Controversial in some quarters, it is also wildly popular, and this readers' advisory by street lit expert Morris sketches out the rich history of the genre, showing why it appeals so strongly to readers and providing a quick way for street lit novices to get up to speed. It also covers a variety of subgenres in terms of scope, popularity, style, major authors and works, and suggestions for readers' advisory. --from publisher description.
