NICKEL & DIMED reveals low-wage America in all its tenacity, anxiety, and surprising generosity--a land of Big Boxes, fast food, and a thousand desperate stratagems for survival. Read it for the smoldering clarity of Ehreneich's perspective and for a rare view of how 'prosperity' looks from the bottom.

You will never see anything--from a motel bathroom to a restaurant meal--quite the same way again.
