Grief and Loss in Toronto

A Recommended Reading List by Daniel Innes and Christina Wong, authors of new book DENISON AVENUE: "Our book looks at grief and loss, primarily the death of a loved one, and how the main character Wong Cho Sum deals with this grief. It also touches upon the loss (or the impending loss) of a community, a neighbourhood, a language: facets that help create a sense of home and belonging. But when these things start to disappear, how do you navigate these changes and find your home and footing again? The following are some of our favourite books set in Toronto that deal with grief and loss in some shape or form and speak to the strength and sadness of characters in their ability to endure."
