Working Words: Punching the Clock and Kicking Out the Jams
Rock stars, poets, filmmakers, activists, novelists, and historians lend their voices to this entertaining collection about the daily grind. From the folk anthems of Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie to the poems of Walt Whitman and Amiri Baraka; from the stories of Willa Cather and Bret Lott to the rabble-rousing work of Michael Moore, and from the White Stripes’ “The Big Three Killed My Baby” to Eminem’s “Lose Yourself,” this great collection touches upon all aspects of working-class life.
Other contributors include: Mark Nowak, Bonnie Jo Campbell, Ed Sanders, Lolita Hernandez, John Sayles, Andrei Codrescu, Bret Lott, Quincy Troupe, Dorothy Day, Thomas Lynch, Diane di Prima, Michael McClure, Walt Whitman, and many more! 550 pages paperback
