Product description

Review

"With a clear-eyed Lambert behind the wheel, Darwin's Moving gives you a full tour of the class divide bubbling up through a rapidly suburbanizing city. In compassionate and concise prose, Lambert delves into the battered histories of the men around him, revealing stories full of joy, rage, fear, and abandonment. Open it up and get in the truck."
~Andrew F. Sullivan, author of Waste and All We Want is Everything

"With humour and unwavering journalism, Taylor Lambert has written an endearing tribute that lifts up the working class men who help us build a home. For once, we're invited into the movers' messy lives, to see their hopes and dreams on the mantle, and the classism in the closet."
~Oman Mouallem, co-author of Inside the Inferno

Product Description

Darwin’s Moving introduces readers to the colourful characters who populate the furniture moving trade, a male-dominated world of labour with relatively high pay and no need for education of any sort. Movers have a unique window into the private spaces of the city as they perform their difficult and delicate job inside all manner of homes, from government-subsidized housing developments to multi-million dollar McMansions.



Taylor Lambert intriguingly explores class and work in a city that would rather focus on the wealth and prosperity brought to it by the oil and gas industry. Darwin’s Moving shows us the Other Calgary, a world populated by transient men and women struggling to survive in a boomtown’s shadow.



Darwin’s Moving takes us behind the scenes of a business that is almost completely undocumented in Canadian literature.
