Review: Fear of Falling: The Inner Life of the Middle Class

User Review  - Heather - Goodreads

One of Barbara Ehrenreich's earlier works, this book is pretty heavy-handed and dry. Plus, the research she sites was done in the early 80s (and this book was written not long after), making much of her social criticism irrelevant. Read full review
