The End of My CareerThe End of My Career by Martha Grover

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


In this collection of personal essays, Grover is incredibly open and honest about the troubles she faces - being female in a sexist world, being physically ill and largely unable to do the physical labor she needs to do for money in a popular, expensive city, having a conscience that precludes her from doing the job she takes investigating insurance claims. There is something intimate and rare in these essays as she doesn't shirk from any uncomfortable detail. Smart writing that transcends the personal to make strong statements about the world we live in.
