Heart in mouth, Katherine Hibbert gives up on the daily round and decides to find out if you can live outside the norm and survive. We have homelessness, we have poverty, we have people unable to afford a nutritious diet, yet there are empty houses, obscene amounts of food thrown away, overflowing skips and a thriving community of people dedicated to living on society’s leftovers. The author charts both the scandal of so much waste and her own attempts to create a new free life living on the margins in a fascinating look at opting out.Like for Like ReadingHow I Lived a Year on Just a Pound a Day, Kath KellyHow to be Free, Tom Hodgkinson
