No Fixed Abode
‘With No Fixed Abode, anthropologist Marc Augé uses the form of the novel to explore the emergence of a new class of poor: those who work, but are left homeless, unable to afford rent [. . .] In this book, Augé explores the need for place, writing that without this point of reference, man loses his identity. And this is especially easy when, like Augé’s hero, we find ourselves facing the vertigo of absolute isolation. A bitter and chilling story of the present day.’ —Le Figaro
