Reseña del editor:

In recent years, social workers have raised concern about the appearance of a new category among the working poor. Even among the employed, there are people so overburdened by the cost of living and so under compensated that they cannot afford a place to sleep. According to the Coalition for the Homeless, contrary to popular opinion, forty-four percent of the homeless in developed nations actually have jobs. In "No Fixed Abode", Marc Auge's pathbreaking fictional ethnography, a man named Henri narrates his strange existence on the margins of Paris. By day he walks the streets, lingers in conversation with the local shopkeepers, and sits writing in cafes, but at night he takes shelter in an abandoned house. From here, we see a progressive erosion of Henri's identity, a loss of bearings, and a slow degeneration of his ability to relate to others. But then he meets the artist Dominique, whose willingness to share her life with him raises questions about who he has become and what a person needs in order to be a part of society. This is a book about how we live in geographical space and how work and patterns of domicile affect our status and our inner being. Despite the apparent simplicity of the fictional premise, Auge's book asks serious questions about the nature of our culture.
