Reviews

"Travis Lupick brings the reality of the perennial war on drugs into vivid focus and introduces an impressive group of activists confronting this 'ongoing struggle' with steely determination and compassion. An intense, riveting report on a public health crisis and a network of heroes on the front lines." --Kirkus Reviews (STARRED) "The story of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside is one of the most inspiring, moving, and enraging stories of our time. This beautiful and haunting book finally does it justice. This is essential history--and it isn't over." --Johann Hari, author of Chasing the Scream: The First and Last Days of the War On Drugs
