Getting to the Bubble

Finding Magic Amid the Urban Roar
One of British Columbia's most popular TV news personalities shares a new collection of his captivating stories

Book Description

Mike McCardell, the legendary Vancouver reporter who tries to restore people's faith in living after they've finished watching the appalling mayhem on the evening news, is back with another collection of simple but irresistible stories: there are the ownerless shoes, sitting day after day in a washroom used mainly by big-time celebrities. There are the big cajones one daren't mention and the magic dachshund whose poop can clear the snow off driveways. There is the roving women's fitness group that performs for a homeless man who lives in a shopping cart. There is the one that got away, always the best one. But most of all there's the tireless reporter combing the streets of his modern big city, looking for inspiring acts of humanity amid the urban roar. And always, always finding them.
