The Torontonians Press Reviews

Karen Whitney is a heroine who can excite the interest of almost any civilized woman today ... In a growing catalogue of books that have been probing the sweet life of suburbia, Mrs. Young's stands out as both wise and witty. The New York Times, July 23 Read not simply as a novel but as a social commentary, The Torontonians offers a fresh perspective on the conceits and preoccupations of a city that still believes itself to be perched at the very edge of modernity Amy Lavender Harris, EyeWeekly, Decemb A revelation ... with vivid details about where we came from and the shape of things to come ... The relevance to today is remarkable. San Grewal, The Toronto Star, January 26, 2008
