Class: A Memoir of Motherhood, Hunger, and Higher Education

When Stephanie Land set out to write her memoir Maid, she never could have imagined what was to come. It was handpicked by President Barack Obama as one of the best books of 2019 and called "an eye-opening journey into the lives of the working poor" by People. Later it was adapted into a hit Netflix series which was viewed by 67 million households. Land’s escape out of poverty and abuse in search of a better life inspired millions.

In Class, Land takes us with her as she finishes college and pursues her writing career. Facing barriers at every turn including a byzantine loan system, not having enough money for food, navigating the judgments of professors and fellow students who didn’t understand the demands of attending college while under the poverty line — Land finds a way to survive once again, finally graduating in her mid-thirties.

This searing book paints an intimate and heartbreaking portrait of motherhood as it converges and often conflicts with personal desire and professional ambition. Who has the right to create art? Who has the right to go to college? And what kind of work is valued in our culture? In clear, candid, and moving prose, Class grapples with these questions, offering a searing indictment of America’s educational system and an inspiring testimony of a mother’s triumph against all odds.
