As Vancouver assiduously prepares to become centre-stage of the world in 2010, the city’s unbridled development and inflated ego are darkly satirized in Nowlin’s debut novel.  Classical mythology, fairy tale, and criminal mystery all interweave to raise questions about modern society’s inordinate appetite for spectacle.

Christopher Nowlin is a criminal lawyer, artist, and author. His first book, Judging Obscenity: A Critical History of Expert Evidence, dealt with freedom of speech and censorship issues. His legal essays have been published in American and Canadian law journals, his art has been exhibited in Vancouver and Toronto, and he appeared in a 2007 documentary film Mr. Big.
