A comprehensive series of 20 reports on poverty in Massachusetts’ vacation paradise
Reporter Sean Corcoran goes behind the facade of resort life to reveal aspects of poverty in the lives of Cape Cod’s year-round residents. Corcoran reports on fishermen, teachers, students, artists, the elderly and the homeless with fine writing and well-edited interviews. The stories reveal the troubling economic consequences of a service-based economy where 58,000 locals are either working poor or elderly struggling to live year-round on the Cape, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.
