Thousands of people live in the subway, railroad, and sewage tunnels that form the bowels of New York City and this book is about them, the so-called mole people. They live alone and in communities, in subway tunnels and below subway platforms and this fascinating study presents how and why people move underground, who they are, and what they have to say about their lives and the “topside” world they’ve left behind.

The Mole People

This book caught me off guard and definitely wasn't what I expected. I was a runaway and homeless for a bit as a teenager. I could relate to some of the stories and to the reoccurring vein of desperation to fit in. I thought this was a wonderful book.

Fascinating work

A truly captivating story that I could not put down. First book I have read that makes me want to do something to make a difference.
