Summary
Arleen spends nearly all her money on rent but is kicked out with her kids in Milwaukee's coldest winter for years. Doreen's home is so filthy her family call it 'the rat hole'. Lamar, a wheelchair-bound ex-soldier, tries to work his way out of debt for his boys. Scott, a nurse turned addict, lives in a gutted-out trailer. This is their world. And this is the 21st century, where fewer and fewer Americans can afford a simple roof over their head. From abandoned slums to shelters, eviction courts to ghettos, Matthew Desmond spent years living with and recording the stories of those struggling to survive, yet who won't give up. A work of love, care and humanity, 'Evicted' reminds us why, without a home, nothing else is possible. It is one of the most necessary books of our time
