In this article, the writer discusses 'The Mole People' which is a fascinating anthropological analysis about a category of homeless people. The writer notes that one might be tempted to believe that it is clear what the book is about from the title, but at a deeper look, it will be obvious that it is a lot more than just a presentation of the lowest part of our society - it is the story of these people told by them. The writer maintains that the author was brave in trying to get to the myth of underground cities and see which part was true and to what extent. However, the writer concludes that the author failed in separating fiction and myth from reality, a reality that she could prove in a more analytical way. Even so, the writer claims that 'The Mole People' is a remarkable attempt to reveal the mysteries beneath NYC.
