Dirty Work: True Confessions of a Neurotic Environmentalist is a funny, sexy memoir about the doubts and misplaced motivations that sometimes come with trying to do “good” in the world.
Author Beth Jones lived a quiet life studying cognitive psychology until she ran away to join Greenpeace at the age of 24.
Eighteen years later, she's an accomplished activist full of quirky admissions about the life she's led:
- chaining herself to railway tracks
- meeting Zapatista revolutionaries
in the jungle
- serving time in prison
- and occasionally experiencing
unrequited love in Wendy’s parking lots
