"In a book of uncommon eloquence, Mr. Belmonte . . . has drawn a series of unsparing portraits showing us how these people live."
New York Times Book Review

"At a time when we have so much difficulty understanding poverty in our own country, it is interesting to look at some other country's poor, to examine their anger and frustration."
Anatole Broyard, New York Times

"The description is rich, thoughtful, perceptive and moving."
Paul Littlewood, Urban Studies
