The Guardian, a UK publishing, reviewed Evicted by Matthew Desmond in April 2016. The review mentioned their take on what the 3 main points of the book would be:
- Rent is the #1 thing holding the poverty stricken in the book back from regaining some sort of foothold in society
- Why are the majority of the people that are evicted from homes women? Why aren’t more men evicted?
- How do these evictions affect the families and neighborhoods in which this struggling transient lifestyles are most prevalent?
It was an interesting review that asked some questions that I have not thought to ask. However, I haven’t finished the book yet either.
