“MAID” on Netflix – and “MAID” the book

So far we have only watched a few episodes of this extremely popular Netflix series but I keep comparing the film version to Stephanie Land’s book – “MAID: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive” – which I read when it first came out.

The book wins, hands down – much less of a “fairytale” (as a recent article in Slate described the Netflix series), much grittier and more realistic –

Check the book out – we have a signed copy of the ARC available here !
