In the underground tunnels below Grand Central Terminal, Lee Stringer, homeless and drug-addicted, found a pencil to run through his crack pipe. One day he used it to write. Soon, writing became a habit that won over drugs. Soon after that, Stringer had written one of the most powerful urban memoirs of all time. With human wisdom and biting wit, Stringer chronicles the unravelling of his seemingly secure existence and the odyssey of survival on New York City's streets.

The author is a good writer and his story as a homeless person and writer/editor of a street newspaper are poignant. Well worth reading to gain some empathy for those homeless people we brush by everyday.
