Yashinsky, Dan


"This is a magnificent book, greatly enriched by Yashinsky's beautiful and evocative writing ... and by Alice Kane's typically graceful contribution ... The best part of reading the book was, to me, a strange intimacy I felt with the tale-tellers ... I actually felt as though I were hearing individual voices ... This is an unusual literary achievement ... I loved this book and was moved by it." Michele Landsberg, author and Toronto Star columnist. "The stories ... represent the imaginations of the diverse people who call Canada home and are a mix of true stories, new stories, fairy tales, translations and adaptations of published stories." Peggy Hill, Globe and Mail. "If stories are food for the soul, then this book offers its readers a smorgasbord ... an easy, pleasurable read." Patty Lawlor, Quill & Quire. "These stories ... have a power that only the absolute best writing can ever hope to match ... Yashinsky is to be lauded for collecting these tales into a marvellous and compelling volume." Sheldon Wiebe, Calgary Herald. "These are offbeat, often quirky folktales spun in the heart of bustling Toronto, although they draw their exotic themes from around the world." Rod Currie, Canadian Press. "The multicultural sampling these stories provide reflects the richness of Toronto's and Canada's ethnic resources." Elizabeth Anthony, Books in Canada.Yashinsky, Dan is the author of 'Tales for an Unknown City From 1001 Friday Nights of Storytelling', published 1990 under ISBN 9780773507869 and ISBN 0773507868.
