HISTORY / Canada / Post-Confederation (1867-)
Bill Duthie Booksellers Choice Prize (BC and Yukon Book Prizes) 2021, Short-listed
As the author of such BC bestsellers as Cold Case Vancouver, Murder by Milkshake, and SensationalVancouver, Australian-born 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 bellyflop 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 pathos, Vancouver Exposed is a vividly entertaining and informative book that pays homage to the Vancouver you never knew existed.

Eve Lazarus is a reporter, author, and the host and producer of the true crime podcast Cold Case Canada. She is the author of four Arsenal titles: Cold Case Vancouver: The City's Most Baffling Unsolved Murders (2015), a BC bestseller and 2016 finalist for the Bill Duthie Booksellers' Choice Award at the BC Book Prizes; Blood, Sweat, and Fear: The Story of Inspector Vance, Vancouver's First Forensic Investigator (2017); Murder by Milkshake: An Astonishing True Story of Adultery, Arsenic, and a Charismatic Killer (2018); and Vancouver Exposed: Searching for the City's Hidden History (2020). She is also the author of Sensational Vancouver (2014), , Sensational Victoria: Bright Lights, Red Lights, Murders, Ghosts & Gardens (2012), and her book At Home with History: The Untold Secrets of Greater Vancouver's Heritage Houses was a 2008 City of Vancouver book award finalist.

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
