More on Vancouver's Downtown Eastside

Congratulations to the editor's of this book for winning the Ryga Award, named after playwright George Ryga, whose play The Ecstasy of Rita Joe was the first Canadian play I ever saw. Maggie De Vries apparently won the inaugural award for Missing Sarah, which I have yet to read but will put it on my list. In plain sight indeed: and only getting worse.
