Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America
NY, Metropolitan Books, (2001). Ehrenreich's best-known work, a report on attempting to live solely on the paychecks of a series of minimum wage jobs in different American cities. Inscribed by the author. Underground journalism by the political activist, reminiscent of George Orwell's Down and Out in Paris and London, more than 60 years earlier. Fine in a fine dust jacket, with blurbs by Studs Terkel and Naomi Klein, among others. [#035844] $150
