The King of Skid Row: John Bacich and the Twilight Years of Old Minneapolis
James Eli Shiffer brings to life the eccentric characters and strange events of the Gateway District, the oldest quarter of Minneapolis. Following John Bacich, who documented the gritty neighborhood’s last days, The King of Skid Row recreates the violent, alcohol-soaked history of a city best known for its clean, progressive self-image.
