  • OUT NOW: Maeve's book - No Fixed Abode - in paperback

    Jun 24 2021

    Creator and host of The Tip Off, Maeve McClenaghan has written a book, and it is now out in paperback.


    No Fixed Abode: Life and Death Among the UK’s Forgotten Homeless tells highly personal, human and sometimes surprisingly uplifting stories of real people struggling in a crumbling system. The book goes behind the scenes of the dramatic, winding investigation that revealed - for the first time - how and when people were dying homeless in one of the richest countries in the world.


    This paperback edition includes a new preface covering the impact of Covid-19.


    Here’s some of the nice things people have said about it:

    “A conscience-pricking look at the reality of life on Britain’s streets . . . No Fixed Abode couldn’t be more illuminating, timely and urgent.” - Sunday Times

    “Urgent, gripping and devastating” - the Secret Barrister

    “A campaigning book of the very highest order” - Irish Times

    ‘A meticulous investigation exposes the shameful truths surrounding the UK’s homeless population . . . moving and revealing” - Guardian


    Available here and in all good bookshops: https://www.hive.co.uk/Product/Maeve-McClenaghan/No-Fixed-Abode--Life-and-Death-Among-the-UKs-Forgotten-Homeless/25638386
