<p><b>'A sensitive expose that illustrates the complexities of modern homelessness. Moving, poetic and as rousing as Orwell.' Cash Carraway, author of <i>Skint Estate</i></b><br /><br />This book will finally give a face and a voice to those we so easily forget in our society. It will tell the highly personal, human and sometimes surprisingly uplifting stories of real people struggling in a crumbling system. By telling their stories, we will come to know these people; to know their hopes and fears, their complexities and their contradictions. We will learn a little more about human relationships, in all their messiness. And we'll learn how, with just a little too much misfortune, any of us could find ourselves homeless, even become one of the hundreds of people dying on Britain's streets. <br /><br />As the number of rough sleepers skyrockets across the UK, <i>No Fixed Abode</i> by Maeve McClenaghan will also bring to light many of the ad-hoc projects attempting to address the problem. You will meet some of the courageous people who dedicate their lives to saving the forgotten of our society and see that the smallest act of kindness or affection can save a life.<br /><br />This is a timely and important book encompassing wider themes of inequality and austerity measures; through the prism of homelessness, it offers a true picture of Britain today - and shows how terrifyingly close to breaking point we really are.</p>
