This was a great read - the story is fantastic and is funny without making light of the characters. I loved getting an insight into 1930s Toronto. Hayward does a great job linking all of the characters and even going back to retell events as they overlapped for different people. There is one passage that summed up so well a feeling I get sometimes that Ive never really put my finger on. It doesnt work so well as a quote because it is pretty specific to the character/event, but it is: .. to find suddenly, that he is able to [do something unlikely/random/positive] runs so contrary to the current of his life that it makes no sense. It robs the moment of any joy, and makes him regard the mystery of [the good things that result] as a predicament, as something needing repair. I guess its just another way of describing overthinking things, but it just rang so true. There is also a description of something I do that I always thought I was getting away with, but which now seems unlikely: Ruthie, who has been staring absently in their direction, tries affecting the blank gaze of the blind, looking straight ahead, but it is too late - they have already seen her seeing them.
