Don't Let the Bench Bugs Bite

Portraits of Homeless New York

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


When writing a feature about murals painted under the pavements of Manhattan by homeless artists, Alan Emmins was challenged by a homeless dancer to try homelessness himself to better understand what he was writing about. He took up the challenge. Don't Let the BENCH Bugs Bite is a humorous, tender and tragic portrait of an invisible New York City, and a society full of surprises.

"An absolutely fascinating book!" Robert Elms - the BBC

"Digging beneath the depressing statistics and grinding poverty, Emmins' is a more than human portrait" Dazed & Confused

'Cutting edge reportage - Alan Emmins sees the world with such a fresh eye!' William Shaw - Author of Westsiders
