Description

Eve Lazarus peels back the layers of Vancouver's history to reveal its surprising hidden depths.

As the author of such BC best-sellers as Cold Case Vancouver, Murder by Milkshake, and Sensational Vancouver, Eve Lazarus has become adept at combining her well-honed investigative skills with an abiding love for her adopted city. These qualities are on full display in her latest book, an exploration of Vancouver's hidden past through the city's neighbourhoods, institutions, people, and events.

Vancouver Exposed is a nostalgic romp through the city's past, from buried houses to nudist camps, from belly-flop contests to eccentric museums. Featuring historic black-and-white and colour photographs throughout, the book reveals the true heart of the city: one that is endlessly evolving and always full of surprises.

With equal parts humour and insight, Vancouver Exposed is a vividly entertaining and informative book that pays homage to the Vancouver you never knew existed.

Editorial Reviews

Eve had me constantly jumping to Google Street View! Buried houses! Tunnels! Investigative tidbits! All the good stuff! All the bad stuff! All the sad stuff! Doot doola doot doo ... Vancouver Exposed! -Nardwuar the Human Serviette


Eve Lazarus is a reporter whose beat is Vancouver's past. She pursues the stories behind the headlines and relics of yesteryear, adding richness and entertaining detail through deep research and interviews with local characters she finds through her blog and social media. This is the twenty-first-century way to tell history - from the bottom up rather than from the top looking down. -Michael Kluckner, author of Vancouver Remembered and Toshiko


Vancouver Exposed is exemplary popular history. -BC Bookworld


Think you know Vancouver? Well, Eve Lazarus has some stories for you. Fond, funny, and fizzing with some of the most fascinating people and places, Vancouver Exposed is a highly readable and revelatory cultural history chock-a-block with as many illuminating photos as insights into the city itself. -Aaron Chapman, author of Vancouver after Dark
