it was amazing
Recommended for: All, Especially those exploring the intersection of Queerness and Class

Out of all the books on Class I've read, this is my favorite, and goes into the category of "cannot put down"...Joanna Kadi explores things not present in theoretical examinations of class...for instance the complexity of class culture as it manifests in Country Music for instance....instead of just dissing on C&W as unenlightened and reactionary music, she goes deeper into its revolutionary heart and potential. The threads in the book on family, and internalized class oppression are amazing, as well as her experience as a Queer, Middle-Eastern, and working class woman. For a small book, there is so much in it.
