The Queen tells the true, fascinating story of Linda Taylor labeled the “Welfare Queen.” Author Josh Levin pieces together the life of the fur-wearing, Cadillac-driving woman who managed to cheat the system and scam the government out of thousands of dollars. The story also delves into how this woman was used to push a vicious stereotype of impoverished people on government assistance abusing the system. This book is a must read!
