My latest book has been published by the University of California Press (Feb 2017) In this book you’ll find out story by story how confusing and dispiriting it can be to land in a country without a deep understanding of its mores, its style, its unspoken assumptions. We also get a thick description of low­paid work and the marginalization of its workforce as they are subject to changing schedules, shaky childcare, long commutes, domestic instability and all the other vulnerabilities attendant on being poor in this country.  To order a copy, please go here
