Discussions for The Dirty Life (Question #9 and 10)
As a new farmer, Kristin struggles with where she fits in the socioeconomic spectrum. It bothers her when a neighbor brings over some kitchen things because she thinks Kristin is needy. Later Kirstin writes that farming makes her feel rich even though she's not.
What makes people feel poor or rich?
How much is the feeling related to money?
Why do you think Kristin goes from being a vegetarian to an omnivore after helping Mark slaughter a pig?
