From NYT Bestselling author M. MALONE, comes a cheeky new romantic comedy of errors. Bennett Alexander is a bonafide genius. He runs his family’s farming cooperative, speaks four languages and is about to apply for his tenth patent. But the one thing he never mastered is how to be cool. His childhood friend Olivia is the only one who “gets” him. Katie Mason is in over her head. Taking care of her two kids and dealing with the aftermath of her divorce leaves her exhausted at the end of every day. By the time she realizes her ex-husband left her with a mountain of bills, she’ll take any job available, including working for the strange, brilliant man who scrambles her brain whenever they meet. When Bennett hires her, the task is simple: teach him to act normal so he can win the heart of his first love. But there’s just one thing: Katie seems to like him exactly the way he is. Now he needs to figure out how to make teacher + student = 4ever.
Is labor’s day over or is labor the only real answer for our time? In this new book, National Book Critics Circle Award finalist and labor lawyer Thomas Geoghegan argues that even as organized labor seems to be crumbling, a revived—but different—labor movement is now more relevant than ever in our increasingly unequal society. The inequality reshaping the country goes beyond money and income: the workplace is more authoritarian than ever, and we have even less of a say over our conditions at work. He tells us stories, sometimes humorous but more often chilling, about problems working people like his own clients—cabdrivers, cashiers, even Chicago public school teachers—now face in our largely union-free economy. He then explains why a new kind of labor movement (and not just more higher education) will be crucial for saving what is left of the middle class; pushing Keynes’s original, sometimes forgotten ideas for getting the rich to invest and reduce our balance of trade; and promoting John Dewey’s "democratic way of life"—one that would start in the schools and continue in our places of work. A "public policy" book that is compulsively readable, Only One Thing Can Save Us is vintage Geoghegan, blending acerbic and witty commentary with unparalleled insight into the real dynamics (and human experience) of working in America today.
