Reviews of : Maid by Stephanie Land PDF Book
Inside this Book – This book is going to garner a range of reactions when it’s published. What this book does well is illuminate the struggles of poverty and single-motherhood, the unrelenting frustration of having no safety net, the ways in which our society is systemically designed to keep impoverished people mired in poverty, the indignity of poverty by way of unmovable bureaucracy, and people’s lousy attitudes toward poor people. When she writes about her circumstances, Land’s prose is vivid and engaging. Her hopelessness, during this time in her life is palpable. But it is strange that the publicity materials compare this book to a book like Evicted. This is a tightly-focused, well-written memoir, a good book, but it is not a deeply researched book about poverty.
Inside this book –Maid PDF Book by Stephanie Land – This is a book about temporary poverty and it is part of a canon where the goal is to reach the middle-class. There’s nothing wrong with that. Where I struggled with this book, was the lack of acknowledgment of white privilege and how that made the arc of her narrative possible, save for a cursory moment where the author acknowledges the challenges immigrants might face that she did not. I also wish the scope of this book was wider. I wasn’t sure of the chronology of a lot of the book, and I would have loved to get a stronger sense of her relationships with other people. I suspect the writer was maintaining personal boundaries in what I perceived as absences but still, I did want to see more human connection, either good or bad. Fortunately, a book does not need to be everything to everyone. Whatever this book’s shortcomings are, it is still an incredibly worthwhile read.
