Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: This is an anecdotal study of a welfare mother in Manhattan written in about 1970 for an article in the New Yorker. The author spent over a year with the subject and became part of the family so she could take notes and make observations as a fly on the wall. The result is a study that reads like a novel of life inside this household, which is quite remarkable. I can't imagine that many other authors have invested the time to research a project like this one.
