'Having and Being Had' is a timely and arresting reckoning with the intricacies of money, class and capitalism from one of the most original authors writing today.
'My adult life can be divided into two distinct parts', Eula Biss writes, 'the time before I owned a washing machine and the time after'. Having just purchases her first home, she now embarks on a roguish and risky self-audit of the value system she has bought into. The result is a radical interrogation of work, leisure and capitalism.
Ideal for fans of Maggie Nelson, Jenny Offill and Claudia Rankine.
