It's a 350-page beast complete with a fat chapter on Montreal's most notable bars, others on Montreal restaurants, hotels, venues, along with chapters on sports/recreation, odd moments, retail, geography and transportation.
It's definitive, authoritative, and exposes Montreal's crazy and often-jawdropping past.
The Odd moments chapter alone is worth the price of the book, with plenty of sex cults and other nonsense.
Buy it off of Amazon, in paper or e-book form.
Or snap it up at Paragraph on McGill College Ave. or one of the wtwo Au Vieux Bouc outlets on the east side.
It took a lifetime to assemble and two years to write.
- "An interesting read which provides readers with the history of Montreal. Great description and anecdotes make you feel like you were there!"
- "If the gods created people so they'd have something to talk about, Kristian Gravenor's Montreal (2017) makes it clear that Canadians created Montrealers so they'd have something to talk about."
