Publisher's Summary

This informative book contains the most provocative, incendiary, and career-making pieces by best-selling author, essayist, political activist, and "veteran muckraker" (Barbara Ehrenreich, The New Yorker).

A self-proclaimed "myth buster by trade", Barbara Ehrenreich has covered an extensive range of topics as a journalist and political activist, and is unafraid to dive into intellectual waters that others deem too murky. Now, Had I Known gathers the articles and excerpts from a long-ranging career that most highlight Ehrenreich's brilliance, social consciousness, and wry wit.

From Ehrenreich's award-winning article "Welcome to Cancerland", published shortly after she was diagnosed with breast cancer, to her groundbreaking undercover investigative journalism in Nickel and Dimed, to her exploration of death and mortality in the New York Times best seller, Natural Causes, Barbara Ehrenreich has been writing radical, thought-provoking, and worldview-altering pieces for over four decades. Her reviews have appeared in the New York Times Book Review, the Washington Post, the Atlantic Monthly, and the Los Angeles Times Book Review, among others, while her essays, op-eds, and feature articles have appeared in the New York Times, Harper's Magazine, the New York Times Magazine, Time, the Wall Street Journal, and many more. Had I Known pulls from the vast and varied collection of one of our country's most incisive thinkers to create one must-have volume.

Critic Reviews

"[Ehrenreich's] significant research is conveyed in a wry, taut polemical style.... [She] chillingly foresaw the devastation of labor and the middle class...and the increased cruelty of law enforcement toward the vulnerable.... With such relevance to fractured late-capitalist America, Ehrenreich's work warrants renewed attention." (Kirkus Reviews)

"[Had I Known is] a one-stop shop for fans of Ehrenreich's gimlet eye and informed outrage.... A rewarding, illuminating tour de force." (Booklist)
