Working Words: Punching the Clock and Kicking Out the Jams

Working Words: Punching the Clock and Kicking Out the Jams

Price: 
$22.00

A collection about living while barely making one, about layoffs and pickets lines, about farmers, butchers, miners, waitresses, assembly-line workers, and the "Groundskeeper Busted Reading in the Custodial Water Closet," this is literature by the people and for the people.

From the White Stripes's  "The Big Three Killed My Baby" to Eminem's "Lose Yourself"; 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 -- this transcendent volume touches upon all aspects of working-class life.
