Creating portraits that are at once intimate and objective, Elliot Liebow breaks down the simplistic stereotypes and dehumanizing labels so often used to describe homeless women. He writes about their daily habits, the challenge of killing time for twelve hours a day when the shelter is closed, the fight against constant exhaustion, and the struggle to make an inadequate system work on their behalf. But he also writes about their humor, their friendships, their care for one another, and their tremendous strength - a strength that enables them to maintain the belief that the future will be better. A future that can include compassionate solutions to the problem of homelessness. 339 pages.
