Author’s Best-Seller Didn’t Fix All Her Finances

From a New York Times story by Ron Lieber headlined “Author’s Best-Seller Didn’t Fix All Her Finances”:

What do you do with the money you earn from a story you wrote about not having much for too many years?

As a single mother cleaning houses, Stephanie Land dusted and polished a catalog of possible answers to this question and chronicled them in her memoir “Maid.” Her new book, “Class,” which comes out on Nov. 7, picks up where “Maid” left off, recounting her struggle to use food stamps to feed herself and her daughter while going deep into student loan debt.
