Surviving on little cash: “Dumpster Diving” by Lars Eighner (1991)


From The Threepenny Review. Re-posted at Tarleton.edu:

“I began scavenging by pulling pizzas out of the Dumpster behind a pizza delivery shop. In general prepared food requires caution, but in this case I knew when the shop closed and went to the Dumpster as soon as the last of the help left.”
