About the TRB


The Toronto Review of Books publishes intermittent digital writing about print, Internet, e-books, street corners, festivals, songs, thoughts, Toronto, and other artworks. Books and Toronto are our inspiration and home base, but we publish on all sorts of things from all sorts of places. Tasting Menu (2013) is a print anthology of some of our best work.
