Apr 24, Carol. Set in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, it examines the lives of a number of people who deal with eviction and the property owners. To those outside the state, it might be less obvious how state politics have played into the background of many of the people in Evicted but suffice to say, the once-independent State of Wisco It is no surprise that "Evicted" was the University Wisconsin-Madison's Go Big Red book read fora book chosen by the chancellor and worked into campus-wide discussions and events.
To those outside the state, it might be less obvious how state politics have played into the background of many of the people in Evicted but suffice to say, the once-independent State of Wisconsin has fallen on conservative and judgemental times. At any rate, for non-fiction book littered with references, it is extremely readable.
Done in a more ethnographic style, it reminds me of Nickel and Dimed: On Not Getting By in America. Read these two back-to-back and I will guarantee you will go to bed thankful. Like Enrich, Desmond tried to 'walk the talk' by living in the trailer park he writes about by renting and living close to the subjects of the book, and by tailing the landlords as much as possible.
The last chapter of the book before the footnotes is an 'About the Project' section that details his own history, his goals and his structure in writing the book.
I actually think it should be the first chapter, as it lends explanation and context to his sources and the style of writing. For those who might be scared off by the voluminous footnotes, I recommend peeking at them-many are actually commentary or elaborations on some of the personal details.
Definitely not one I would have wanted to read on Kindle. Unlike Nickel and Dimed, much of Desmond's material will be controversial, perhaps only serving to reinforce stereotypes about poor people.
In some ways, perhaps, this might be one of those books that says just about as much about the reviewer as the subject. Being entirely honest with ourselves is hard, right?
Issue one, the simple one: If I didn't deal with the COBRA paperwork, I'd probably be fine unless I got in a traumatic car wreckbecause I have prescriptions stocked, generally good health, financial resources and a job that will cover me in a month.
Issue two, the complex one: Physiological stress can result in more or even less reactive brain than one that has only smaller, more intermittent amounts of stress leading to the million-dollar question of how to we teach resilience?
A body that is always on alert because of safety issues, or a body that is always hungry is not one that will be in an environment of optimal function. You see where I'm going with this?
A majority of people in this story sprung from poverty. They were born into it, had their brains wired by it, their coping skills and expectations structured by it.
They were set up to 'fail' by traditional society. Patricia's kids, the ones who are sharing a mattress on the floor in the living room? Probably not going to be doctors and own the latest McMansion.
Desmond actually demonstrates impaired coping from ongoing stress when he shows how Arleen initially tries to deal with Crystal's generous but irrational moods and how Arleen eventually responds from a place of stress, anger and pride that makes the housing situation even worse.
I'd even argue that Arleen was never set up to succeed in the first place from her childhood. Issue three, the other complex one: People will argue that heroin is a 'worse' addiction. I don't know; you live long enough, you see addictions come in waves, like fads. Meth was the rage in Wisconsin about ten years back.
Heroin is the hot drug these days. Scott is the poster child for addiction in this book, a former nurse who got caught using and spiraled down. You know how many sanctions are applied quarterly to nurses who use some kind of substance?The best opinions, comments and analysis from The Telegraph.
