Poetry on the Job
Going for Coffee
edited by Tom Wayman
Now in its third printing! The original ground-breaking anthology of North American work poetry.
Book DescriptionHere is the populist anthology that touches the heart of North American life, a collection that achieves in poetry what Stud Terkel's Working did in prose. Its wide appeal is obvious.
Included are 200 selections by 90 Canadian and American writers, from foundry workers and short-order cooks to the likes of Joyce Carol Oates, Patrick Lane, Pier Giorgio di Cicco and Wayman himself.
