An in-depth look in poverty in America

Matthew Desmond takes the reader into the inner workings of eight families residing in Milwaukee. Through bouts of homelessness, perspectives from different landlords, and an endless cycle of always trying to make ends meet, Desmond paints a sobering picture of what living in America looks like for whole communities of people.
