NEW YORK TIMES  BESTSELLER • WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE • NAMED ONE OF TIME ’S TEN BEST NONFICTION BOOKS OF THE DECADE • One of the most acclaimed books of our time, this modern classic “has set a new standard for reporting on poverty” (Barbara Ehrenreich,  The New York Times Book Review ). In  Evicted , Princeton sociologist and MacArthur “Genius” Matthew Desmond follows eight families in Milwaukee as they each struggle to keep a roof over their heads.
