Evicted by Matthew Desmond – The Guardian Book Review


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:

  1. Rent is the #1 thing holding the poverty stricken in the book back from regaining some sort of foothold in society
  2. Why are the majority of the people that are evicted from homes women? Why aren’t more men evicted?
  3. 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.
