Evicted, by Matthew Desmond from Best Books of 2016

Evicted, by Matthew Desmond 1 100x100

This non-fiction writing is a top book to read from those written in 2016. Winning a Pulitzer Prize in 2017, it asserts the critical acclaim and influence that the book makes. It is about families hit by 2008 crisis and depicts poverty, struggle for financial stability and a constant search for affordable housing.


I just started Underground Railroad and I love Whitehead’s prose so far. This hasn’t felt like a strong year for literature.

I liked Underground Airlines...it was one of those books where I finished it and wanted more from the same universe. I think Whitehead did a phenomenal job at shaping not only the story itself but a fully formed and scarily realistic world.
