City of Glass: Douglas Coupland’s Vancouver
Genres Travel Writing
This irresistible little book offers a very different take on Vancouver, one of the world’s most beautiful cities. Douglas Coupland applies his unique sensibility to everything from the Grouse Grind to glass towers, First Nations to feng shui, Kitsilano to Cantonese.
Cleverly designed to mimic an underground Japanese magazine, this edition is fully updated and revised with riffs on Vancouver as a neon city, a land of treehuggers, and more.
“Subjective in tone and sexy to look at, City of Glass is a delightfully outlandish travel book — just the sort of whacked-out guide you wish every was available for every great city in the world.” The Globe & Mail
