About the book
Andrei Codrescu says "Frances Lefkowitz writes with grace, wistfulness, melancholy, and strength.
The road to self-knowledge is twisted and arduous,
but when it goes through a writer as good as
Ms. Lefkowitz, the ride is a delight."
To Have Not is a memoir of growing up poor, white, and female in 1970s San Francisco, getting a scholarship to an Ivy League college in New England, and discovering the downside of upward mobility.
Named a "Best Memoir of 2010" by SheKnows.com.
NOTE: Blame it on supply chain issues, but Amazon seems to only be offering the Kindle or used copies. For a new paperback, please contact Frances directly.
