Kirkus Reviews: EHRP’s ‘Penetrating’ Anthology ‘Certain to Challenge Readers’ Views of Those Living in Poverty’

“The EHRP is ‘a nonprofit organization that keeps journalists, essayists, and photographers in the national conversation on economic injustice.’ Edited by executive director Quart and managing director Wallis, this collection of essays, poems, and photographs, originally published in leading magazines and journals, highlights the valuable insights gained by these journalists in confronting their own hardships. By publishing these works, the EHRP seeks to mobilize people ‘to fight for economic justice.’ The book is divided into five sections: The Body, Home, Family, Work, and Class. These emotionally charged and heart-wrenching narratives are both wide-ranging and powerfully rendered… A penetrating collection that is certain to challenge the readers’ views of those living in poverty. —Kirkus
