In this profile, Steven Beattie writes that in the latter stages of her new book, Linda Leith “locates herself as a resident not of Montreal but of ‘Dream City,’ a kind of utopia that Zadie Smith defined as ‘a place of many voices, where the unified singular self is an illusion.’ This is a suitable description for the woman who’s always been enthralled with books and still describes herself as an incurable romantic. ‘I don’t mean the genre of romance. I mean just the romance of writing and art and literature and culture. That’s my world.’”
