Praise

Praise for There Are No Children Here:

“An extraordinary glimpse into the lives of those struggling for survival and dignity in inner-city America.”—Chicago Sun-Times

“Alex Kotlowitz’s story informs the heart. His meticulous portrait of two boys in a Chicago housing project shows how much heroism is required to survive, let alone escape.”—The New York Times

“Kotlowitz has achieved a triumph of empathy as well as a significant feat of reporting.”—Los Angeles Times

“A powerful argument against the politics of inertia, hopelessness, and greed, and for a real war on poverty, violence, and racism in our country.”—Tracy Kidder, author of Among the Schoolchildren
