Each of the stories in this book reflects something about the city — what it means to be born here, to escape here, to live and die here. In exploring life in Toronto through the stories of some of the country’s finest writers — including Neil Bissoondath, Matt Cohen, Timothy Findley, Katherine Govier, Norman Levine, Rohintin Mistry and more — the city’s complex personality emerges, takes shape and, for a moment, makes sense.
