20 Jobs: A Memoir (Paperback)
How many jobs have you worked throughout your lifetime? In the 1950's, at age 14, the author's life changed when she reluctantly gave up her summer of freedom and started her first job as a carhop. She had no idea there were 19 other jobs ahead before she could dream of retirement. Like many young women of her generation, she had no plans or direction for her life except to maybe find a steady boy friend and get married. Otherwise, her future was a mystery. The mystery unfolds job by job as the ups and downs of her life are revealed with insight and humor. Readers of all ages can identify with the situations and emotions in the various workplaces.
