Click here to read the abstract of the story on The New Yorker webpage (this week’s story is available only for subscribers). Caitlin Horrocks’ “Sun City” was originally published in the October 24, 2011 issue of The New Yorker.
I had never heard of Caitlin Horrocks until this morning. She’s published in several other literary magazines (including a few I read often, like The Paris Review, Tin House, The Gettysburg Review, and The Kenyon Review, though apparently not in one of the issues I read), so I’m looking forward to her debut in this magazine and to becoming acquainted with her work. I will be posting thoughts here eventually, but feel free to leave any thoughts in the comments.
