"Former Hamilton Spectator reporter Davy tells the story of Margaret Jacobson, a homeless woman who battled mental illness and went in and out of the health care system until she died in a sub shop in Hamilton in the 1990s. Initially Jacobson and, later, her family, gave Davy access to her medical files and family history, allowing for that rare thing: a full biography of a homeless person, who is often nameless and faceless. Important."
