As she rose to infamy, the press and politicians manipulated her image to demonize poor black women, Hôm nay tôi sẽ làm hết tất cả.. Part social history, part true-crime investigation, Josh Levin's mesmerizing book, the product of six years of reporting and research, is a fascinating account of American racism, and an expose of the "welfare queen" myth, one that fueled political debates that reverberate to this day, Hôm nay tôi sẽ làm hết tất cả.. THE QUEEN tells, for the first time, the fascinating story of what was done to Linda Taylor, what she did to others, and what was done in her name."THE QUEEN is a wild, only-in-America story that helped me understand my country better, Hôm nay tôi sẽ làm hết tất cả.. It's a fascinating portrait of a con artist and a nation.., Hôm nay tôi sẽ làm hết tất cả.. and the ways the United States continually relies on oversimplified narratives about race and class to shape public policy, almost always at the expense of brown people and poor people." (Attica Locke, author of the Edgar Award winning Bluebird, Bluebird)

A desperately ill teacher, a combat-traumatized Marine, an elderly woman hungry for companionship-after Taylor came into their lives, all three ended up dead under suspicious circumstances, Cứu tôi với. But nobody-not the journalists who touted her story, not the police, and not presidential candidate Ronald Reagan-seemed to care about anything but her welfare thievery.Growing up in the Jim Crow South, Taylor was made an outcast because of the color of her skin. Hồi hộp quá!.

Slate editor Josh Levin's masterful account of the life and crimes of America's original "welfare queen" is "an invaluable work of nonfiction" (David Grann, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Killers of the Flower Moon).On the South Side of Chicago in 1974, Linda Taylor reported a phony burglary, concocting a lie about stolen furs and jewelry, Tất cả đều rất hoàn hảo!. The detective who checked it out soon discovered she was a welfare cheat who drove a Cadillac to collect ill-gotten government checks, Tất cả đều rất hoàn hảo!. And that was just the beginning: Taylor, it turned out, was also a kidnapper, and possibly a murderer. Đẹp gì mà đẹp!.
