NOW Magazine - Best of Toronto - - Books -

DIONNE BRAND What? Not Mar­garet At­wood? That’s cer­tainly what our read­ers have said for, well, for­ever. Bar­bara Gowdy? Ann-Marie MacDon­ald? All gifted, for sure, but our cri­te­ria here are spe­cific. We’re nam­ing some­one who writes about Toronto in all its di­ver­sity – es­pe­cially the ex­pe­ri­ence of those who come here from other coun­tries – and is fear­less and pointed in her po­lit­i­cal com­men­tary. Read WhatWe All Long For to see what we mean. When she de­scribes a down­town street it feels like home.
