In this highly acclaimed book (the basis of a new HBO miniseries, produced by David Simon, creator of The Wire) Lisa Belkin brings to life a landmark public housing case in Yonkers, New York in riveting detail. What began with a judge's order to build scattered-site public housing in middle-class neighbourhoods, ended in the near destruction of a city - sparking prejudices, fanning emotions into flame and eventually leading to murder and suicide. Belkin's sympathetic portrait of the people at the centre of this crisis - hopeful, fearful, greedy, manipulative, the gamut of human behaviour - is page-turning to its powerful, redemptive end.
