Urban Fiction Genre – What’s the best definition for urban genre? Books in the urban fiction genre (also known as street lit) are made up of stories that take place in a city setting, but the race and culture of the characters are just as important and defining as the setting itself. The tone of the books in this genre is usually dark, focusing on the underside of city society and structure; profanity, sex, and violence are usually explicit. In the urban genre no aspect of city life and reality are shied away from or watered-down to make the reader comfortable.
