Front Cover
AuthorHouse, Jul 15, 2010 - Biography & Autobiography - 152 pages

I am not homeless- I'm just someone who can't go home

With these words, the young man known as Guttersnipe begins his account of two years spent living on the streets of Canterbury.

Amongst the struggles he must face every day there is one that he never anticipated; that of boredom and how to occupy his time. Acting on a friend's advice on how to combat this problem, he begins to write his thoughts down each day. He records his observations, his ideas, his memories and his own life story.

It is these writings that form the basis of The Guttersnipe Journals.

Guttersnipe's story does not simply focus on the hardships that keep him apart from society - but rather he finds the common threads of human experience that bond us all together.

It is a story that everyone should read.
