Another instance of someone using their tragic experience to pull themselves out of it. This anonymous woman blogged about her life living in a car in the London woods. The blog caught the attention of mainstream media and literary agents, landing her a book deal and a home. However, there are many people who contend that it's all a hoax, pointing to inconsistencies in her writing as proof.

Homeless people are called "clochards" in France. They grew into an urban reality of considerable proportions from the beginning of last century, i.e. when the Industrial Revolution was in full swing.

Many clochards people modern novels. They usually are depicted as men with a somewhat pronounced interest in booze (presumably to keep them warm through icy winter nights).  To some they came to represent the anti-hero heroes, the guys that opposed conformism and the Establishment.

About ten years ago I heard of a beggar woman's death in Yangshuo, Guangxi. As a tourist to Yangshuo I had known the person. She had no next-of-kin. Her death led to the discovery of a pile of money in her rambling house. Why she had been begging throughout all those years nobody knew; some thought she must have gone bitter and desperate after the death of her husband but actually nobody knew whether she had ever been married. Anyway, the amount found in her house was substantial.
