From First published in the Netherlands in 1996, this book chronicles Voeten’s five-month exploration of the society that exists underneath the streets of Manhattan. Voeten, an accomplished war photographer and reporter, didn’t write about the people who lived in the tunnels under New York from the point of view of an observer. He lived in the tunnels, grew to know the people who lived there, and came to understand not just how they got there but also the society they have created. Like Jennifer Toth’s Mole People (1993) and Matthew O’Brien’s Beneath the Neon (2007), Voeten’s book captivates readers with its compassionate portraits of the people and their surroundings, while exploring the surprisingly varied reasons why these men and women wound up living just beneath the surface of the reader’s world. --David Pitt "Voeten has found yet another frontier in the great American experiment—the one underground, in the tunnels of Manhattan—and deliver[s] it to us in an utterly charming and fascinating account,' says Sebastian Junger."  —Publishers Weekly "Voeten’s book captivates readers with its compassionate portraits of the people and their surroundings, while exploring the surprisingly varied reasons why these men and women wound up living just beneath the surface of the reader’s world."  —Booklist "Tunnel People is a social documentary project, in the tradition of Jacob Riis's How the Other Half Live and Dorothea Lange's American Exodus. It exposes us to people in straitened circumstances and advocates for their relief."  —Wall Street Journal “Voeten is no doubt one of the most adventurous reporters in the Netherlands.”  —Vrij Nederland Magazine "Teun Voeten has found a way to show us the tunnel people not by their statistical trademarks—drug addiction, alcoholism, crime, and AIDS—but rather through their humanity, their talents, their extraordinary attitudes of good humor and hope."  —[tk] reviews "Voeten resists the temptation to sensationalize and romanticize the underground tunnel people. Nor is his book sentimental . . . [it is a] sober and well-written report about the mean misery underground: That makes this book so powerful."  —Volkskrant "Tunnel People is a supreme example of participatory observation. The insider's point of view comes here to full light in a brilliant way. It is not an objective case-study, but a subjective, journalistic reportage, right to the point of an incredible, dynamic, human underworld that is nowhere being sensationalized nor romanticized by Voeten."  —Passage
