Maid bStephanie Land

Before it became a Netflix drama, Maid was the eye-opening memoir from a young mother striving to make a living. It gave me a new perspective of often-unseen domestic workers and the struggles they face while hovering around the poverty line.

 

 

 

 Sarah recommends:

The Storyteller: Tales of Life and Music by Dave Grohl

Musician, collaborator, director, producer, dad: We all know Dave Grohl from Nirvana and the Foo Fighters. Now he tells stories of the moments he has collected of this singular musical life.  

 

 

Marilyn recommends: 

Taste: My  Life Through Food by Stanley Tucci

Completely charming and poignantly funny, Stanley intersperses stories of his youth, and career with killer recipes (yes, the martini is amazing).
