This Land Is Their Land: Reports from a Divided Nation

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

Barbara Ehrenreich’s first e-book of satirical remark, The Worst Years of Our Lives, concerning the Reagan period, was once acquired with bestselling acclaim. the single challenge used to be the name: couldn’t a few prophetic fact-checker have visible 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 most harsh decade in reminiscence, Ehrenreich unearths lurid extremes throughout. whereas participants 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 bad usually move with out overall healthiness take care of their youngsters. And whereas the company C-suites at the moment are nests of illegal 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 young ones; Salvation military models if you happen to can now not have enough money Wal-Mart; and boundless rage opposed to those that have given us a kingdom scarred via deepening inequality, corroded by means of mistrust, and shamed through its legitimate cruelty.

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