More Description


One powerful taboo that still remains in our literature today is the taboo against discussing our most central daily experience: working for a living.
Poet and editor Tom Wayman believes that with the recent appearance of a new kind of work writing we have begun at last to see the end of this limitation. In his essays gathered in "Inside Job" Wayman considers this new fiction, poetry and drama and argues that the new writing will change not only the literature of the future but also what we value from the literature of the past. Wayman demonstrates as well how the new work writing differs from 1930s-style "socialist realism."
"Inside Job" shows for the first time why an accurate presentation of our work will be increasingly the subject our best authors choose in the 1980s and for generations to come. "Inside Job" includes a selected bibliography of recent work writing.
