Reviews

"Extraordinary." --Malcolm Gladwell, The New Yorker"A remarkable feat of reporting...The level of detail in this book and Goffman's ability to understand her subjects' motivations are astonishing--and riveting." --The New York Times Book Review"Necessary... Goffman's lively prose--communicated in a striking voice rare for an academic--opens a window into a life where paranoia has become routine... She goes beyond her street-level focus to argue something more profound." --Baltimore City Paper"Alice Goffman's On the Run is the best treatment I know of the wretched underside of neo-liberal capitalist America. Despite the social misery and fragmented relations, she gives us a subtle analysis and poignant portrait of our fellow citizens who struggle to preserve their sanity and dignity." --Cornel West
