Eggs for Young America by Katherine L. Hester

book 65:  Eggs or Young America by Kaherine L.Hester

This is a book of short stories about working or "underclass" people, struggling but surviving through their lives.  They are very honest and use a lot of analogy, like words with different layers of meaning, to add depth and dimension to otherwise seemingly straight-forward slice-of-life stories.  It was a little close to home sometimes for me, in my current socio-economic position, and because all the stories are set in or near places I lived or know well.  It felt a little haunting and sad.
