East Van (2004)
By Chris Walter
Dill is a hope-to-die punk junkie with holes in his boots and a room in the deplorable Belmont Hotel. Stephen is a highly paid real estate developer with a million dollar house and a beautiful family. When Stephen makes plans to convert four hotels on the Downtown Eastside into backpacker's hostels, the two men cross paths and the trouble begins. As violence erupts on the mean streets, Dill and Stephen discover that they have only one thing in common: addiction. This is a war where there can be no winners, and desperation is the glue that binds the enemies together as they speed towards ultimate destruction and a nightmare from which escape is unlikely.
Chris Walter writes with humour and passion, prompting his readers to laugh at things they never dreamed they could find amusing. Both darkly hilarious and emotionally devastating, East Van is a story with characters so strong and a message so powerful that its impact will linger long after the last page is turned.
