About the Author
Lars Eighner was born in Corpus Christi, Texas, grew up in Houston, and lived primarily in Austin, Texas. He chronicled his (and his dog's) experiences with homelessness in his critically acclaimed memoir Travels with Lizbeth, which includes the often-cited essay "On Dumpster Diving." It was a New York Times Book Review Editor's Choice and the Times named the book one of the 50 Best Memoirs of the last 50 years. Eighner's other works include an essay collection, numerous story collections and the novel Pawn to Queen Four.
Reviews

"The most eloquent description to date of what it is like to be homeless." --San Diego Union-Tribune

"Compelling...Mr. Eighner [is] a quirky guide into the homeless condition as he plunges on, through Miracle Miles, desert flea markets and dusty truck stops." --The Wall Street Journal

"If there's any justice in the world, [this book] should guarantee its author a roof over his head for the rest of his days." --The New York Times Book Review
