      It's impossible not to be intrigued by this one. There are exceptions.

      For example, the word "hende," used so frequently in The Miller's Tale, has a great variety of meanings -- clever, tricky, courteous, handy -- all of which are implied in any single usage, lending these usages a richness in reference that is lost in any translation. Author Jeff Faux, English middle classes book president of the Economic Policy Institute and frequent contributor to The Nation, paints what lies ahead: underemployed twentysomethings turning into fortysomethings with dead-end jobs, retirement indefinitely postponed, most of us permanently earning lower wages even if the economy bounces back. It is also a period of rapid urbanization, when subsistence farmers abandon marginal farms to work in factories, resulting in a several-fold increase in their economic productivity before their wages catch up to international levels. For this, as social historians remind us, was a middle-class age, in which political power had begun its slow migration from the land. This book is a collection of autobiographical stories about Sedaris' life, characterized by his witty personality and his keen observations.
