Description

With one side in Mile End and the other in Outremont, Hutchison Street is inhabited by characters from many different backgrounds, including a community of Hasidim and a writer whose newest project is a novel about the people she has lived among for thirty-nine years. She traces the life stories of an aging singer, a bag-lady who feeds birds in a back alley, an Italian widow who grows tomatoes in her front yard, a Jamaican woman who longs to dance the night away, and a young Hasidic girl who keeps a diary. A moving account of isolated individuals attempting to reach out to one another in one of Montreal's most diverse neighbourhoods.

Editorial Review

"A lesson in tolerance, this novel is also a tribute to books - all books: crime fiction, the Torah, the Bible, the private journal, the cookbook. To the books that bind us together." - Christian Desmeules
