Bringing together an ensemble of Canada's best-known, mid-career, and emerging writers, including Margaret Atwood, Austin Clarke, Leon Rooke, Anne Michaels, Michael Ondaatje, Katherine Govier, Robertson Davies, Steven Hayward, and Barbara Gowdy, this anthology stands as the perfect gateway to discovering the city of Toronto. With a diverse range of content, the book focuses on the stories that have taken the city, in just six decades, from a narrow wryly praised as a city of churches to a brassy, gauche, imposing metropolis that is the fourth largest in North America. With an introduction from award-winning author Matt Shaw, this blends a cacophony of voices to encapsulate the vibrant city of Toronto.
