Street People
By Paul Perry
ISBN: 978-1-929763-08-5
Price: $14.95
Shipping: $4.00
        
Multiple award-winning San Antonio author Paul Perry's poignant Street People tales describe the "fringe" members of American society: the downtrodden, homeless, prostitutes, winos, hobos, hitchhikers, ex-cons, alcoholics, drifters, panhandlers, and bums. Set in the highways, byways, and harsh concrete of today's Texas cities, these two dozen stories explore the issues and life struggles of denizens of the streets. An aching, unflinching, stark, and deeply moving tour through the "invisible" underbelly of the United States.

Street People is also available as an ebook on Amazon.com for the Kindle.

Paul Perry is also the author of Lost People, more stories about the homeless among us.

Text Of Review: Paul Perry's take on the down and out is both genuine and entertaining... qualities that evoke an overall awareness and compassion for the characters in his well-crafted stories.

Kelly Dessaint, Editor/Publisher, Phony Lid Publications


Each story in Paul Perry's Street People conveys a distinct feel and setting, and his characters reveal the human condition at its most colorful, its most flawed. Perry's stories sparkle with life.

Sarah Lepine, Editor, Foliage


Street People serves one audience, humans.

Aubrey Hiers in Real Change


Street People gives readers a vivid insight into the lives and dramas affecting homeless people in this country. The stories will break down your stereotypes as to who homeless people really are, and how, in many ways, homeless people are no different from any of us.

Michael Stoops, Community Organizer, National Coalition for the Homeless, Washington, DC


...Although most fiction on the homeless tends to ridicule or perpetuate hackneyed images of the tattered baglady pushing a shopping cart or the familiar wino slumped in a backstreet alley, not so in Paul Perry's fictional universe. These street people are the salt of the earth, the forgotten Americans--and Perry has given them a voice of their own...Rich in plot and dramatic tension, almost echoing the narratives of Hemingway and William Faulkner, these stories cut straight for the throat and the funnybone. Perry has done a masterful job of portraying these street denizens that we'd follow them to the edge of tragedy and back again to redemption.
