From acclaimed author, Noah Milligan, comes a short story collection, Five Hundred Poor .
The title comes from Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations , "Wherever there is great property there is great inequality.
For one very rich man there must be at least five hundred poor, and the affluence of the few supposes the indigence of the many.
The affluence of the rich excites the indignation of the poor, who are often both driven by want, and prompted by envy, to invade his possessions." These are ten stories of those five hundred poor, the jaded, the disillusioned, and the disenfranchised.
