This semi-autobiographical title looks at the childhood and teenage years of Bruno, a boy growing up in Toronto's Little Italy area. With vivid descriptions of memorable events, this once-fledgling neighbourhood comes to life with stories of weddings, funerals, feasts, and processions. Revisiting an endless array of family gatherings, neighbourhood girls, dinners, and covert trips to Italy, these reminiscences about the city with the largest population of Italians outside of Italy creates a lively picture of multicultural friendships.
