The Bronx Slave Market

March 25, 2011 § Leave a comment

You may have noticed, with a founder like Erin Wisti, an about-to-break-into-creative-nonfiction-stardom, that we’re big on the genre.  Today we’re reading Marvel Cooke’s The Bronx Slave Market.  Basically, Cooke pretends to be poorer than she is and goes undercover working as a maid.

There are so many amazing moments in this piece, it’s hard to pick out only one, but we love when Cooke talks to these other day maids.
