Deeply visceral book showing an array of issues from child abuse, addiction, mental health, suicide & all set around the true, and despicable, tale of the Cambridge Two, imprisoned for not squealing to police pressure on activity in the homeless shelter they ran in the late `990s. Ultimately it`s about Stuart Shorter, the man you pass & judge daily for being lairy, intoxicated & frightening yet this exposes his story & some detail of how he became a street sleeper, convict & all other labels socirty loves to lavish without a hint of reasoning or a question. A must read.
