Description
Poets, rock stars, filmmakers, activists, novelists, and historians lend their voices to this lyrical collection of pieces about the daily grind, about living while barely making one, about farmers, butchers, miners, waitresses, assembly-line workers, and the "Groundskeeper Busted Reading in the Custodial Water Closet." Poet M.L. Liebler, the founding director of the National Writer's Voice Project in Detroit and a winner of the Paterson Poetry Prize, gives us literature by the people, for the people. 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; from the White Stripes' "The Big Three Killed My Baby" to Eminem's "Lose Yourself," this volume touches upon all aspects of working-class life.

"M.L. Liebler is the poet laureate of America's working class. The collection he has assembled rings out with truth, intensity and love.... This book is the kind of spark we need these days—a rich, intense and inspiring collection for and about those who get their hands dirty every single day."—Michael Moore
