Book Review: 'Golden Gates: Fighting For Housing In America'


Happy to share a book review I published in this month’s issue of The Nation. The book is Golden Gates: Fighting For Housing In America, and was published earlier this year by Conor Dougherty, a New York Times journalist. It looks at the housing crisis in the U.S., with a particular focus on California and San Francisco. I was commissioned to do this piece in early February, before the pandemic upended our world, but COVID-19 has only reinforced even more brutally just how important it is to make sure everyone has a safe place to call home, and how important it is that we finally act.
