To me, Maid by Stephanie Land, is the Educated of 2019. I couldn’t put this memoir down and I wanted to know more when I was finished reading. Maid is Stephanie’s story of single motherhood, working as a maid while trying to finish college and stay out of homeless shelters. It began with a reporter’s tone and short, non-complex sentences, but Stephanie grew as a writer as the tale unfolded. I expect there will be a sequel in the works, as there was a long article in the NY Review of Books which covered a lot of the topics I wanted to know more about. She has enough material to keep her audience happy with another book. Grab it – it’s hard not to want to read it all in one sitting.
