This review is from: Gotta Find a Home: Conversations with Street People (Kindle Edition)
Gotta Find a Home. Conversations with Street People by Dennis Cardiff.
Author Dennis Cardiff uses an interesting technique to tell us this story, which is actually comprised of many stories, real stories of the real lives of real people; the street people that most of us look right past every day, or look at with unfounded, negative disdain. Cardiff spent time with some of the street people and panhandlers of Canada, and in this book, he gives us a chance to get to know them a little bit, a chance to try to understand how and why they live this life, that they have hopes, dreams, fears, and regrets, just as everyone else does. I really enjoyed the journal style of the writing, and Cardiff writes with a warm and genuine voice that reaches the reader to impart deeper meaning to the bare bones of the story. You can feel the honest emotion in the way that Cardiff shares these stories, and it makes the telling of the stories that much more important.
