Street addresses were not invented to help you find your way; they were created to find you. In many parts of the world, your address can reveal your class, race, power, and identity. Author Deirdre Mask fills The Address Book: What Street Addresses Reveal About Identity, Race, Wealth, and Power with fascinating people and histories. She illuminates the complex and sometimes hidden stories behind street names and their power to name, to hide, to decide who counts, who doesn’t—and why.
