This Land Is Their Land: Reports from a Divided Nation

The United States within the ’aughts—hilariously skewered, brilliantly dissected, and darkly clinically determined by means of the bestselling social critic hailed as “the soul mate”* of Jonathan Swift

Barbara Ehrenreich’s first booklet of satirical remark, The Worst Years of Our Lives, in regards to the Reagan period, used to be bought with bestselling acclaim. the only challenge used to be the identify: couldn’t a few prophetic fact-checker have noticeable that the worst years of our lives—far worse—were nonetheless to come back? right here they're, the 2000s, and during this Land Is Their Land, Ehrenreich topics them to the main biting and incisive satire of her career.

Taking the degree of what we're left with after the harshest decade in reminiscence, Ehrenreich reveals lurid extremes throughout. whereas individuals of the moneyed elite should purchase congressmen, many within the operating type can slightly purchase lunch. whereas a filthy rich minority obsessively consumes plastic surgery, the negative frequently pass with no future health deal with their teenagers. And whereas the company C-suites at the moment are nests of criminal activity, the fewer lucky are fed a nutrition of morality, marriage, and abstinence. Ehrenreich’s antidotes are as sardonic as they're spot-on: puppy assurance on your youngsters; Salvation military models when you can not have the funds for Wal-Mart; and boundless rage opposed to those that have given us a country scarred via deepening inequality, corroded through mistrust, and shamed via its respectable cruelty.

Full of wit and generosity, those reviews from a divided country express once more that Ehrenreich is, as Molly Ivins stated, “good for the soul. ”
