Street people. We see them frequently in our day-to-day travels, but we don't have a clue as to how they survive on the streets. We may get brief glimpses into their world, the missions, the ragged individuals asking for spare change, the soup kitchens, but Ace Backwards gives us our first real foray into daily life on the streets. Intended to be written as a how-to for anyone contemplating or more likely thrust by circumstances into street life, it is an uncensored and candid look at an entirely different world that exists co-dependently with the one with which most of us are familiar.
