"Real, heart wrenching, sublime, and necessary."--Rawi Hage V6A is the postal prefix for Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, Canada's poorest neighborhood and a prime example of the ramifications of urban blight in North America; it is also the epicenter of a notorious missing women's case in which many sex workers and others were murdered, and home to a controversial safe-injection site for drug users. This anthology refracts the experience of those who live and work in the Downtown Eastside, reappropriating the coding of the area and recasting the neighborhood as a site of creative energy, community spirit, and human dignity.
