Stimulates thought on a subject which many take for granted.

During my four years of solitary confinement I had to come to terms with my inner life in a new way. Today, I feel at home in virtually any part of the world for I carry ‘home’ within. There is a great deal of truth in the statement that homelessness is a state of mind although that is not the whole truth of course. It is utterly miserable, and frightening to be without shelter and vulnerable to the world. As Jennifer Kavanagh points out in this book the concept of home means so much more than having an adequate place to live. It is, as she says, ‘Where we all want to be’. This book is important reading for anyone who would seek to explore the concept further…It does not pretend to contain all the answers but it certainly stimulates thought around a subject which so many of us take for granted.
