New York Time Book Review – In ‘Evicted,’ Home Is an Elusive Goal for America’s Poor:

In the New York Times Book Review: In ‘Evicted,’ Home Is an Elusive Goal for America’s Poor, Jennifer Senior points out that the emphasis on this book unlike “Most examinations of the poorest poor” takes a look at poverty not from a public housing perspective, but from the private rental market. She notes that “Sixty-seven percent of poor renting families received no federal assistance for housing at all in 2013” and “The very people least capable of spending 70 to 80 percent of their incomes on rent are exactly the ones forced to do so” She says this book “Through data and analysis and storytelling” “issues a call to arms without ever once raising its voice.” I must say I agree.
