A powerful journey through the experiences of homelessness that sets a new scholarly standard for its synthesis of insight and empathy. The book documents and defines new ways of understanding homelessness that are sensitive to the many ways it is embodied. Robinson has crafted a deeply compassionate yet theoretically sophisticated vantage point from which to embrace the trauma of being homeless. She charts the implications of loss and displacement that pervade this condition and advocates not only political solidarity but also deeply felt research encounters. A compelling case for the significance of place in our construction of self. . . . An engaging and powerful argument.
