Maureen D

everyone should read

by Maureen D on May 12, 2011

Paul Fusell's book is a must read in the current society where the rich are dominating and class has become everything. Written the late 80's this book is more relevant in the 21st century than every before

the stuff no one talks about in polite company

by mishv on Jul 17, 2008

If you've ever wanted to know where you stand within invisible class lines, you'll know after reading "Class". Even if you don't care or distain people who do, there's a group for you too. With entertaining insights on everyone from your waitress to your neighbour to your in-laws, "Class" is spot on. For anyone who reads David Brooks' social commentaries, you can add Pauk Fussell to your reading list.
