Hand to Mouth
[living in Bootstrap America]Audiobook CD - 2014
We in America have certain ideas of what it means to be poor. Linda Tirado takes all of these preconceived notions and smashes them to bits. She articulates not only what it is to be working poor in America (yes, you can be poor and live in a house, own a cell phone, and have a job, even two), but what poverty is truly like. In her thought-provoking voice, Tirado discusses how she went from middle class to sometimes-lower middle class to poor, and everything in between, showing how slippery the bottom rungs of society's ladder are, and what happens if you don't have a safety net to catch you when you fall.
