    Paperbackë Copernicus Avenue PDF EPUB ↠ copernicus ebok, avenue pdf, Copernicus Avenue PDFEPUBAfter learning that many of the stories are interconnected I immediately wanted to read the collection again knowing I'd have a very different experience than I did reading the stories as separate entities This just goes to show that this book can hold its own as both as novel and as a collection of stories To my knowledge not many authors are able to accomplish such a thingAnd while I can't speak for the Polish experience within this book I can speak for the how Canada and Toronto is represented within the story I absolutely loved the commentary scattered throughout the stories ranging from different perspectives on the Canadian identity to the fact that Toronto always seems to be tearing down buildings and putting something else in its place I've seen comparisons to In the Skin of a Lion and I can't help but agree as both books cover the Canadian immigrant experience in a collection of stories Reading this collection made me

    Paperbackë Copernicus Avenue PDF EPUB ↠ copernicus ebok, avenue pdf, Copernicus Avenue PDFEPUBMore of random thoughts than an actual critical reviewThe author did a really good job of capturing that Polish immigrant feel and the spirit of Poles Though this book takes place in Canada I can definitely see the story as being set in Chicago or some other Polish city instead In addition I can even see some parts of the characters in people that I know Perhaps it means that the cities or most immigrant cities follow the same patternin a way it's sad Reading this book gave me a sense of nostalgia in a way or at least ample opportunity to relate I know what it feels like to be an immigrant's childto have a Polish background but at the same time to be something else entirely

    Paperbackë Copernicus Avenue PDF EPUB ↠ copernicus ebok, avenue pdf, Copernicus Avenue PDFEPUBA linked collection of short stories set in Toronto's Polish community both in Toronto Roncesvalles Village from the immediate postwar era forward and in Europe I enjoyed the evocative descriptions of the city reminded me a bit of In the Skin of a Lion and the exploration of the effects of war and migration as first generation immigrants tried to settle in their new country haunted by what had occurred in their old on

    Paperbackë Copernicus Avenue PDF EPUB ↠ copernicus ebok, avenue pdf, Copernicus Avenue PDFEPUBIf like myself you're a Polish Canadian and live anywhere near Toronto you know all about Roncesvalles Avenue This fictional re imagining of this iconic neighbourhood and its people hits so many powerful notes in my psyche that it may as well be a documentary Even if you're not subject to the cultural nostalgia as I am this remains a powerful evocation of a Toronto ethnic enclave in transition during the decades after WWII A wonderful poignant beautiful read

    Paperbackë Copernicus Avenue PDF EPUB ↠ copernicus ebok, avenue pdf, Copernicus Avenue PDFEPUBIf you are somehow connected to the both popular yet seemingly unknown street of Roncesvalles Ave in Toronto Ontario this book will have some meaning to you but I'm unsure if you can say anything else about it other than that it's a collection of stories Roncesvalles Ave now in 2018 continues to change and evolve but it is far from the Polish hub it was when I was a child in Toronto in the 90s and early 2000s frankly it was already changing back then What exists now is a weird combination of Canadian staples like Tim Horton modern staples like a vegan juicing bar and boutiue clothing stores Copernicus Ave

    Paperbackë Copernicus Avenue PDF EPUB ↠ copernicus ebok, avenue pdf, Copernicus Avenue PDFEPUBThese stories were written with just the right touch It would have been easy for them to deteriorate into cheap sentimentality at times but they never do Borkowski keeps the emotion real The writing in St David's Day was exceptionally well done particularly in regards to the running of the Lancaster bomber Borkowski had me believing he must be a pilot himself to w
