Absolute kudos to Matthew Desmond for his detailed look into the heart of America's troubled capitalist system. His research and first-hand accounts of people living in poverty in Milwaukee is desperate, heartbreaking and dire, at the same time he offers an alternative to attempt to remedy an age old discriminatory system.
Eight individuals and families in this book represent an ongoing endemic situation that has perpetuated over the last century. Desmond explains circumstances that many ie. institutions are familiar with but choose to not deal with. Definitely deserved of the Pulitzer Prize.

The author follows several families, reports their stories, and points to facts that contribute to their decisions which prolong their poverty. This is an important book that provides points revelation to the debate about poverty and points to eviction's role in it. The Epilogue itself is worth the price of the book.
