(libro usado 427) Lillian Breslow Rubin, in this brilliant and moving account of the angers, frustrations, and small joys of life in the American white working class today, describes the grim childhood memories of the men and women who make up what has been called “the silent majority,” their troubled marriages, uncommunicative sex lives, unfulfilling work, and all too costly leisure. In doing so, she uncovers frightening ambiguities in the lives of people to whom America promised so much, but delivered so little. This is a sensitive and compassionate portrayal of childhood, marriage, and adult life among the hard-working not-quite poor. It is an important contribution to our understanding of ourselves.
