What if the rich were considered poor? The poor, rich? What if money was to be discarded, not collected? In his debut novel, William Potter explores this world; a world where the hierarchy of the socioeconomic structure is reversed, where the goal is poverty, where the homeless are glorified.

Every stranger walking up the street, every car driving down the three-lane highway, every jogger squeezing by you on the narrow pavement, is a life. A life you may never see with again. A life you may never know. A life that could be perfectly compatible with yours.
