    If you are somehow connected to the both popular yet seemingly unknown street of Roncesvalles Ave in Toronto Ontario this book will have some meaning to you but I'm unsure if you can say anything else about it other than that it's a collection of stories Roncesvalles Ave now in 2018 continues to change and evolve but it is far fr

    Other than two embarrassing copy editing mistakes glaring out at me on Page 3 which caused me to feel sad about the state of publishing today and to be gravely upset on the author's behalf and another two in later stories in this work which I also noted as they interrupted my late night reading this was an unbelievably terrific collection of short stories linked commonly by Copernicus Avenue a street in Toro
