Composition 120-Rhetorical Analysis November 09,2007 Rhetorical Analysis of Scrubbing in Maine The book Nickel and Dimed by Barbara Ehrenreich is about a journalist going out to find if she could live the life of a normal working class person. She needs to be able to pay for rent, food, and a few other utilities while still working a low paying job or two and making it by without using the extra cash she brought along with her. Her point to writing Nickel and Dimed is to see how people, who are working low paying jobs and who don’t have the path set out for them, are making it while paying for all the needs in life. Barbara Ehrenreich grew up in a working class family. Her father was a copper miner who eventually worked his way up into the corporate business. After receiving a PhD in cell biology at Rockefeller University she decided to go into political activism instead of pursing her science career. In 1991 she started writing for the magazine Time and later started writing for New York Times, where she was offered a job but decided to go into book-writing. Nickel and Dimed was published in 2001 by Henry Holt and Company, LLC. Henry Holt and Company, LLC was founded in 1866 by Henry Holt and Frederick Leypoldt. “Today the publication program focuses on American and international fiction; biography, history and politics; science, psychology and health; and books for children” (www.henryholt.com ) Although they also have different imprints in which they publish different kinds of books. 0684637 p.1
