One Day, Even Trevi Will Crumble is rare among first collection of stories in its scope and originality. All set in the Montreal neighbourhood of Notre-Dame-de-Grace, these tales of taxi drivers, bums, and the lonely is told in a prose that is straight up and deeply felt. McDevitt’s characters have their eyes and ears tuned into a world that, although crumbling, is bursting with feeling. The edgy urban feel of many younger writers is matched in this collection with a boundless compassion for the city. Stories with both the grit and tenderness of city life.
