This review is from: Cabbagetown: A Novel (Paperback)
Ok this was a very hard book to find, If you ever lived in Cabbagetown(located in a hard area of Toronto. I lived there when I was first married. We had the Salvation Army hostel across the street with the local colorful men congregated every night for a bed. This book really spells it out what that neighborhood was like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grab a Canadian dictionary, Nov. 26 2002

This review is from: Cabbagetown: A Novel (Paperback)
I really enjoyed this book, but reading it at 23 was a small challenge. I didn't know if it was the author, the time, or the region, but I found there were many words that I just didn't know. Some could be deciphered by reading the sentence or paragraph, others I wrote down and looked up; even that was enjoyable. I had done a research paper on Cabbagetown, but really enjoyed a novel written by someone who lived it and loved it.
Wonderful story, cool history, great writing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still Relevant Today, Sept. 8 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Cabbagetown: A Novel (Paperback)
Cabbagetown is still as relevant today as when it was written in 1950. With the same same econmic and cultural pressures in play today as during the Depression it is well worth the read.
