Writing a Toronto Book

That I accidentally wrote a Toronto book speaks to the mystery of writing and the strange distance an author can have from work that she herself created. But mostly, it's evidence of the strong pull my adopted city has on the imagination of Canadian readers like me who grew up knowing literary Toronto long before living here.
