Anybody Can Do Anything

University of Washington Press

After the bankruptcy of the chicken ranch immortalized in The Egg and I, Betty MacDonald returns to live with her mother and desperately searches to find a job to support her daughters. With the help of her older sister Mary, Anybody Can Do Anything recounts her failed, and often hilarious, attempts to find work during the Great Depression.

Betty Bard MacDonald (1907–58), the best-selling author of The Egg and I and the classic Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle children’s books, burst onto the literary scene shortly after the end of World War II. Her other memoirs are The Plague and I and Onions in the Stew.
