Martha's Vineyard Author Series: Matthew Desmond
From Matthew Desmond, a Harvard sociologist and MacArthur "Genius" fellow, comes a landmark work of scholarship and reportage that will forever change the way we look at poverty in America.  EVICTED: Poverty and Profit in the American City is a brilliant, heartbreaking book. Desmond takes us into the poorest neighborhoods of Milwaukee to tell the story of eight families on the edge.  He moved into a trailer park and then to a rooming house and diligently took notes on the lives of people who pay 70 to 80 percent of their incomes for homes that, objectively speaking, are unfit for human habitation.
