Matthew Desmond

City Arts & Lectures

In Conversation with Michael Krasny. Even in the most desolate areas of American cities, evictions used to be rare. But today, most poor renting families are spending more than half of their income on housing, and eviction has become ordinary, especially for single mothers. In vivid, intimate prose, author Matthew Desmond provides a ground-level view of one of the most urgent issues facing America today in his book Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City. As we see families forced into shelters, squalid apartments, or more dangerous neighborhoods, we bear witness to the human cost of America's vast inequality--and to people's determination and intelligence in the face of hardship.
