This Land is Their Land
This Land is Their Land
By Barbara Ehrenreich
256 pages. Metropolitan.


Lacing outrage with biting humor, Barbara Ehrenreich recasts Woody Guthrie's famous lyric in This Land Is Their Land (Metropolitan). Read these pointed essays—each one a guided missile—on the high cost of being poor, on America's bloodsucking healthcare system, on our hard-to-stimulate economy ("You'd think [it was] a giant sex organ"), and laugh through your tears.
