Cities are made to exist in ones imagination by storytellers... James T. Farrell, the American storyteller, once said, "Those people of mine, my characters, they are Chicago. Thats the way it is, whats mine is yours, in your imagination, Chicago is yours."
Farrell bespoke a great truth. Cities are made to exist in your imagination by storytellersthink of Joyce and his Dublin, Dickens and his London, Dostoevsky and his St. Petersburgand you realize that what is theirs forever is also yours for the taking.
Toronto was once a mean, narrow town, wryly praised as a city of churches, dourly dismissed as a grungy little Belfast, a town with no story of its own. It is now the fourth largest city in North America. Over the last 60 years, the city has been turned upside down and inside out; its a place where skyscrapers seem to spawn skyscrapers. It is now brassy, gauche, imposing, a city powered by people of colour and creeds from all over the worldand so too the citys storytellers, who have given vibrant voice to the citys charactera cacophony of voices that dare to be themselves, dare to be great... and because of them, we are certain that, like Dublin, London, St. Petersburg, or Berlin, Chicago and New York, Toronto exists.
