Family Track by Constance Coiner
Book DescriptionAt a time when the academy is an ever more demanding arbiter and shaper of the lives of those it employs, The Family Track: Keeping Your Faculties while You Mentor, Nurture, Teach, and Serve discusses the challenges and benefits of balancing a rewarding professional life with the competing needs to nurture children, care for aging parents, and engage in other personal relationships. Here academic women and men explore issues that include biological and tenure clocks, child care and eldercare, surrogate parenting of students, and increasing job demands. In telling stories about the quality of their lives, they express their hopes, anxieties, difficulties, and personal strategies for maintaining a delicate but achievable balance.

This study contributes to efforts to promote working-class writing as a legitimate category of literary analysis. It demonstrates how the writing of Olsen and le Sueur anticipated many of the concerns of "second wave" feminists, and how their feminist ideals related to the American Communist Left.
