Vancouvered Out, Norman Nawrocki’s new novella, is a dramatic and timely story about roots, gentrification, housing rights, community and the fight for a city. We see it through the eyes of Steve, a poor and unemployed East Ender. Demons and drug dealers drove him out of town ten years earlier in 2004. Now he’s back seeking a new life and answers to the mysterious death of his teen daughter. But in this coastal paradise he once called home, he feels strangely out-of-place. As the love of family and friends stokes his own smouldering defiance of the new soul-destroying urban order, he aches for justice and a liveable city for all.

Vancouvered Out shimmers with rage and tenderness, in Nawrocki’s inimitable, bare-knuckled style. He is both a scene painter and a modern-day haruspex, rendering the entrails of the city we once knew, and mirroring its sordid portents in its glass towers.” ­– Christina Shah,author of Rig Veda

“As brutal as a back alley OD, Nawrocki takes you places suburbanites fear to go. The destruction of the once-livable Vancouver by greed and corruption is laid bare by its chief victims, the homeless. If Vancouvered Out doesn’t piss you off, you are brain dead.” – Larry Gambone, author of No Regrets: Counter-Culture & Anarchism in Vancouver
