WINNER, Carol Shields Winnipeg Book Award, Manitoba Book Awards 2013Desired and reviled, adulated and condemned, Winnipeg inspires intense and contradictory emotions from residents, visitors and people who have never even ventured within wading distance of the Manitoba capital. The city at the centre of North America inspires a profound sense of ambivalence, stuck as it is between a colourful and triumphant early history, a long period of 20th-Century decline and an uncertain if optimistic future. Stuck in the Middle finds photographer Bryan Scott and journalist Bartley Kives exploring the geography, design and reputation of the only city they have ever truly known, loved and hated. With vicious honesty and intense affection, Scott and Kives expose Winnipeg's beautiful and conflicted soul for the rest of the world to admire and detest and ultimately ignore.

Editorial Reviews

"If you care about this city, you will love Scott's atmospheric, chiaroscuro-style photos and Kives's irreverent humour, as they make their case by taking us on a whirlwind tour from the end of the last continental Ice Age to the return of the Jets." — The Winnipeg Free Press

"The great Winnipeggian coffee table book has arrived!" — The Spectator Tribune
