Our Working Lives

(2000)
An anthology of stories edited by

 
 
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.
