Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fiction. In this anthology, through a variety of voices and venues, work and the workplace provide setting, metaphor, and meaning — Bonnie Jo Campbell. In most ways this...is a perfect model of the American short story of work: intimate with the working experience, its work and culture, giving respect and space for the worker to speak his/her grief and joy within a collective sensibility, creating a form that exposes the effects of oppression and how character can be molded in resistance. It relies on a vibrant intimacy of voice through an oral, first-person narration and includes memoir to allow the life experience to find its own organic form — Larry Smith.

Synopsis:

A series of group readings is planned for around the Midwest.

Synopsis:

In this new collection about contemporary people facing the post-industrial age and the work of their lives we have stories about carpenters, painters, waitresses, nurses, teachers, plumbers, social workers, ushers, factory and cannery workers, car salesmen, hardware sellers, chicken butchers, junk dealers, miners, lifeguards, out-of-workers. It makes us realize how some truths must be spoken as stories. This is a strong collection appropriate for a general audience and for college readers.
