Without a Net: The Female Experience of Growing Up Working Class - Michelle Tea, Dorothy Allison, Diane Prima, Daisy Hernandez, Terri Griffith, Polyestra, Sailor Holladay, Silas Howard, Lis Goldschmidt, Dean Spade, Tatiana De LA Tierra, Shell Feijo, Colleen McKee, Wendy Thompson, Cassie Peterson, Eileen Myles, Tara Hardy, Liliana Hernánd I enjoyed this collection of short essays about working class women from a wide variety of backgrounds as they struggle through poverty, inadequate health care, humiliation, inferior housing, poor working conditions, unemployment, dead-end jobs. Their stories were raw, personal, sometimes depressing, yet always engaging. These women may be victims, but they are also strong and resourceful survivors.
