Born in the Hell's Kitchen area of Manhattan, Cadillac Man has lived on the streets in four of New York's five boroughs. His journals have been excerpted in Esquire magazine.
Cadillac Man's story is grueling. His book is not. He works to put human faces on the men and women you see huddled under overpasses and in alleyways, and there are cracks of light in the tale he tells, even moments of joy, bravery and suspense. - Dwight Garner, The New York Times *Starred Review* Cadillac guides readers through streets most people don't (or choose not to) see...revealing the compassionate hearts that beat even in the most despairing circumstances. - Publishers Weekly From first page to last, [Land of the Lost Souls is] tragic, comic, dramatic, and emotionally charged. Cadillac Man describes his life on the streets in precise detail: how to survive, how to eat, how to keep clean and warm. His world is frequently bleak, naturally, but the bleakness is punctuated by moments of surprising humor and joy and by encounters with an assortment of strange and wonderfully interesting people. - Booklist
