Evicted : Poverty and Profit in the American City By Matthew Desmond


‘Beautifully written, thought-provoking, and unforgettable … If you want a good understanding of how the issues that cause poverty are intertwined, you should read this book’ Bill Gates, Best Books of 2017

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 twenty-first century: where fewer and fewer people can afford a simple roof over their head.

‘Essential. A compelling and damning exploration of the abuse of one of our basic human rights: shelter.’ Owen Jones

‘If I could require the president to read one book it would be Evicted’ Zadie Smith
