I bought this book because I had previously purchased Homeland. I went through a variety of emotions reading this book from sadness and anger back to a profound sense of awe at how people who are homeless and without access to sanitation or food in many cases can still be able to move forward with such dignity and poise. This was so touching and inspiring. Someplace Like America documents the lives of many generations, giving the reader a profound sense of connection to these families. I think this is where the real strength of the book lies: the stories of those who have lost jobs and homes remain at the centre of the book. I also liked that the author does not draw simplistic political conclusions from his subjects. All political parties have failed the working class of America. They have failed generations and a new system or economy must now take place to halt the endless sea of foreclosures and job losses that will haunt a nation.

Difficult reading throughout, but a book that I will give to members of my family and friends.
