Stacy Wakefield
Wakefield spent years living in squatted buildings in Europe and New York and brings firsthand knowledge to Sid’s story: How urban homesteaders lived without plumbing or electricity, how they managed their semi-legal status, and what they cared about and fought for. With Sid, Wakefield has created a character who belongs to that world and is also entirely relatable. Sid is a resourceful, intrepid young woman with a wry sense of humor; she’s great company on our journey into the lost world of New York City’s recent past.
