This book is a classic, intimate study of the people of Toronto's East of Parliament neighbourhood in the 1970's, a time when the working-class district came under undprecendented pressure from developers and middle-class gentrification.
An unconvential account, Working People combines a wide variety of materials--interviews, economic analysis, songs, jokes, newspaper advertisements, community newspapers, photographs--to present an unparalleled portrait of a changing urban community in depth.
Working People remains a fascinating record of a community in transition.

"A book in the tradition of Agee and Orwell."

- Robert Fulford

"A kind of unconventional masterpiece."
