Neighbourhood Watch

January 31, 2013

magnifiedworldI read the debut novel of Toronto-based author, Grace O’Connell, Magnified World, over the holidays.
It is wonderfully written, and a compelling read, even if it does leave you with some large questions that will nag long after you have finished (consider yourself warned!). I look forward to what is next from the author.
The most wonderful part of the book is how intimately it is set in my neighbourhood of (West) Queen West— from the park, to the shops, and specific streets. It set the scene to connect with the story even more.
And unlike some movies that are set in Toronto (I may be looking at you ‘Take This Waltz‘…) it maintains the geographic integrity of the city, as the characters travel through it. That kind of stuff can be important! Hurrah!
