Issue: January 21, 2010

Hi everybody,

It’s a cliche that every writer hates, but a picture is worth a thousand words. If that’s true, then photographer Dana Nollsch’s photo essay in this week’s issue of the RN&R is a novella about life in Reno’s most impoverished neighborhood: Tent City. Nollsch’s guide through Tent City is Dr. Mom, who’s lived there for so long she considers herself a native. Dennis Myers takes a look at another uncomfortable place to live: Nevada’s prisons. And I visit a somewhere a little more fun: a home that, for one night only, will become an art gallery.

Thanks for reading the RN&R!

If it weren’t you, we’d be tent shopping.
