From The Tyee
A Bohemian Vancouver, Lost and Found

Café Men. Photo taken in Vancouver in 1972 by Curt Lang.

More than a biography, At the World's Edge is a detective story in which [author Claudia] Cornwall investigates a man, and a kind of life, she deems elemental. The author knew Lang in his later years and, she being a gifted reporter, decided to go back and gather his story in order to retrieve glimpses of a Vancouver that now is all but polished from view.
