In the Skin of A LionBook - 1987
Set in the turbulent, muscular new world of Toronto in the 20s and 30s, the author entwines adventure, romance and history, real and invented, enmeshing us in the lives of the immigrants who built the city and those who dreamed it into being: the politically powerful, the anarchists, bridge builders and tunnellers, a vanished millionaire and his mistress, a rescued nun and a thief who leads a charmed life.
