In this intensely researched, graphic and often horrifying book written in 1993, Sean Jones examines the overcrowded, squalid, violent milieu of the migrant worker hostel through the eyes of a handful of the myriad children who call it home. The informal style of the narrative and its evocative use of children's oral and written testimony make the book accessible to the general reader as well as to scholars and professionals.
