“Astonishing . . . [Matthew] Desmond has set a new standard for reporting on poverty.”—Barbara Ehrenreich, The New York Times Book Review

“Gripping and moving—tragic, too.”—Jesmyn Ward

“This book gave me a better sense of what it is like to be very poor in this country than anything else I have read. . . . It is beautifully written, thought-provoking, and unforgettable.”—Bill Gates, Gates Notes

“This is an extraordinary and crucial piece of work. Read it. Please, read it.”—Adrian Nicole LeBlanc

Evicted stands among the very best of the social justice books.”—Ann Patchett

“After reading Evicted, you’ll realize you cannot have a serious conversation about poverty without talking about housing. . . . The book is that good, and it’s that unignorable.”—Jennifer Senior, The New York Times
