Photographed by Bryan Scott

Great Plains Publications | November 1, 2013 | Trade Paperback

Stuck in the Middle: Dissenting Views of Winnipeg is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
WINNER, Carol Shields Winnipeg Book Award, Manitoba Book Awards 2013 Desired 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.

About the Author

Journalist and author Bartley Kives has been writing about urban affairs, pop culture, travel and sustainability in Winnipeg since the 1990s. He is reporter-at-large for the Winnipeg Free Press and an occasional broadcaster. His first book, A Daytripper's Guide to Manitoba, was published in 2006. It has since become a Canadian bestseller. Winnipeg photographer Bryan Scott has been documenting the city's architecture and streetscapes since 2005. After studying as an architect and graphic designer, he works in advertising while maintaining a photo blog called Winnipeg Love Hate. He self-published a book of photos from the site in 2010.

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
