    New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, (1999) dj. Hardcover first edition - A study which follows a dozen people who sell on the streets of Greenwich Village - mostly secondhand books and scavenged goods - over a period of five years, illustrated with photographs by Ovie Carter, "as they do their best to live successfully on their own terms, with all the good and bad consequences that entail. Some of these people (almost all men) are drug addicts and some of them choose to live as 'unhoused' individuals. But many of them find a strong sense of purpose and identity in their work and choose to live in ways that best facilitate that work; they are as motivated - more, perhaps - -as workers holding 'respectable' office jobs." Winner of the 1999 Los Angeles Times Book Prize. Author "Beyond its sensitive portrayal of black men living on the margins of society, SIDEWALK is a testament to the survival skills of a people who from slavery to the present somehow have cobbled lives stunted by racial deprivation into a mostly unheralded affirmation of the human spirit." Notes. 383 pp. ISBN: 0-374263558.
