Earning a Crust
Author: Peter Cross
Paperback 216 x 135mm 212pp £12 99 1-85252-396-4 2002
Unlike most career books, Earning a Crust talks to people who actually work and live their jobs. It is not a how to get this or that job book but an inspirational volume for anyone wishing to consider options that they might not otherwise have thought of.
The book covers around 75 detailed interviews with women (and one man!) who, for the most part, work in atypical employments. The interviews developed from a series of articles that appeared in national weekday and Sunday papers.
The jobs covered range from chimneysweep and canoeist to taxidermist, hat maker and lorry driver, touching on unusual and challenging careers in entertainment, caring and health, the outdoor life, food and drink, applied arts, around the house and the body beautiful. The book also contains a wealth of useful and useable references, contact details and trade organisations.
This is a book for all readers, not just women, as the details of the jobs are just as applicable to men.
