Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Touching, and well worth the read.” Publishers Weekly
Homeless at Harvard possesses not one ounce of self-congratulation or condescension. Nor does it read like a cold anthropological tome. With its accounts of real human suffering and hard-won camaraderie, it is a spiritual document through and through.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
