Down and Out in New York City: Homelessness, a Dishonorable Poverty
This remarkable book presents a series of vignettes of homeless people from the streets of New York. Riveting photographs of each person accompany the stories. Many of us tend to lump all the homeless together into a single, faceless category. It's easy to see why. We seldom actually hear the voices of the homeless. The author uses an approach which allows these people to speak through him. Perhaps they will no longer remain silent. All of us should listen.
