If you have not yet dropped into Indigo, Paragraph, or Coles (Dorval, Angrignon and Cavendish) or Au Vieux Bouc (two locations in east end) you surely have purchased your copy of the must-own, must-read, must-study and must-memorize book Montreal 375 Tales on Amazon.
It is a must-have for anybody interested in Montreal and is bound to become a collectors item as well to be pulled down and perused with great regularity.
A French book publisher has made an offer to translate it as it's the "best book about Montreal" in their eyes, so a French version is on the horizon.
See the video above with a bit of reference to the book as well as a slew of other stuff getting discussed.
Montreal 375 Tales has earned five stars on Amazon. Here are some reviews:
If you're a Montrealer you must read this wonderful and bizarre book . guaranteed to amuse and educate.you may even read about a piece of history you were part of.only bad thing is it kinda made me homesick for the coolest city in North America. Keep on telling tales Kristian.
This book is terrific. Top-class Montreal lore. Combination of encyclopedic knowledge of local history, street by street & through the centuries, decades & years, plus inexhaustible literary ebullience on every page. Al Palmer reincarnated. Every self-respecting Montrealer should buy a copy.
Fantastic book. Short little stories about The history of Montreal. Perfect for short bus rides or for keeping by the toilet.
This book is a luscious mulligatawny of the proud and profane, the naked and the nearly naked, the weird and wonderful that have made Montreal a city to love and remember. Kudos to Mr. Gravenor for his adroit selection and presentation of this fascinating collection of morsels from Montreal's long and vibrant history. Highly readable and highly recommended.
