Reviews - What do customers think about Somewhere in the City: Selected Stories?
Somewhere in the City by Marcia Muller Feb 18, 2008
Good reading because of the variety of stories included,and the different main characters,not always Sharon McCone.Gives you a chance to compare the authors writing style when different characters are speaking.Really good for picking up and leaving again which isn't always such a good thing to do with a novel.
MANY REPEATS Oct 6, 2007
I love Marcia Muller and hate to write anything negative, but I was excited about getting a book of new short stories, and so many are repeats. There are 19 stories in the book, and ten were already published in other collections: The Place that Time Forgot, Somewhere in the City, Final Resting Place, Silent Night, Benny's Space, The Lost Coast, and Deceptions are in "The McCone Files." The Holes in the System, The Wall, and Up at the Riverside are in "McCone and Friends."
I'm sure I'll enjoy the remaining nine stories, but I'm going to read them carefully and then give this book to someone for Christmas. At least I've started my holiday shopping!

I've been a fan of Marcia Muller for more than 15 years now and she continues to delight me! This collection of short stories fills in some of the holes in the McCone series that the novels sometimes don't address. A great read that can be enjoyed in small bites.
