In October 2017, Douglas's narrative nonfiction book Every Day We Live Is the Future: Surviving in a City of Disasters will be published by the University of Texas Press. This cautionary tale of urban inequality and the suffering caused by climate change recounts the true stories of two Nicaraguan migrant families' quests to survive in one of the world's most disaster-prone cities. Gathered here are photographs of the extended families and places featured in this book. 

"This is a vivid and gritty account of life in the kind of urban shantytown where a huge percentage of humanity lives out a lifetime . . . A crucial read.”
                                                  --Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy

"Shows an indomitable human spirit and resilience in the face of long odds and no safety net. A potent book that gives faces and voices to trends that are too often reduced to cold statistics and academic analyses."                                                                                                                                          --Kirkus Reviews
