With the same eye for character, anecdote and circumstance that made Peter Ackroyds London and Colin Joness Paris so successful, Levines captivating prose integrates the sights, sounds and feel of Toronto with a broad historical perspective, linking the citys present with its past through themes such as politics, transportation, public health, ethnic diversity and sports. Toronto invites readers to discover the citys lively spirit over four centuries and to wander purposefully through the citys many unique neighborhoods, where they can encounter the striking and peculiar characters who have inhabited them: the powerful and powerless, the entrepreneurs and the entertainers, and the moral and the corrupt, all of whom have contributed to Torontos collective identity.
