Barbara Ehrenreich is the author of fourteen books, including "Dancing in the Streets" and "The""New York Times" bestsellers "Nickel and Dimed" and "Bait and Switch." A frequent contributor to "Harper's" and "The Nation," she has also been a columnist at "The New York Times" and "Time" magazine.
Ehrenreich's vicious, hilarious and striking tour de force of American culture and society today addresses a range of issues from class warfare to health care, higher education to feminism to religious institutionalization and political power. She weighs in with wit, clarity and authority that few authors can match. Loosely knitted together, this collection of essays paints a disappointing picture of the world today. Cassandra Campbell works well with Ehrenreich's prose. She's keen at picking up Ehrenreich's wit and smoothly delivers punch lines. Campbell's inflections are also particularly strong, especially when Ehrenreich is driving home a point or taking a shot at someone or something. Campbell's light and crisp tone is a perfect match for Ehrenreich's demeanor and textual tone. A Metropolitan hardcover (Reviews, Mar. 24). (July) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
