Title
City Unique: Montreal Days and Nights in the 1940s and ’50s
Abstract
An account of Montreal between the onset of the Second World War and the Quiet Revolution, when the city was a wide-open, swinging metropolis, the vice capital of Canada and the country’s epicentre of culture. The author tells of criminals, prostitutes, reformers, politicians, Montreal’s three solitudes (French, English and Jewish), the jazz scene, and the Anglophone literati who set a new standard for Canadian literature.
