Tango on the Main

In this award-winning collection from his Montreal Gazette city columns, Joe Fiorito reveals the true heart and soul of a large city. He walks the streets, meeting and talking to the people who make the city tick but never make the front-page news. In Tango on the Main he introduces us to Jackie of the Ritz, Montreal’s chambermaid to the stars…the itinerant who reads Tennyson and drinks his daily pint of vodka on the McGill campus…the former featherweight champ who spends his mornings at the gym and his afternoons taking care of his ailing wife — to name but a few of the memorable characters whose lives he explores.
