From the Back Cover:

This vital and compelling collection of stories about work, compiled by novelist and short-story writer Richard Ford, explores tales of how we Americans are employed; how we find work and leave it; how it excites, ennobles, occasionally debilitates, but often defines us.

Contributing writers for Blue Collar, White Collar, No Collar range from contemporary Pulitzer Prize winners Edward P. Jones and Jhumpa Lahiri to iconic short-story masters Tobias Wolff, Annie Proulx, and Joyce Carol Oates, as well as emerging writers such as Lewis Robinson. Encompassing a wide range of contemporary literary styles, ages, ethnic backgrounds, and geographical locations, Blue Collar, White Collar, No Collar is a masterful, exhilarating, and timely fictional exploration of work and its relationship to the human spirit.

All author proceeds from Blue Collar, White Collar, No Collar: Stories of Work will go directly to fund the free youth writing, tutoring, and publishing programs offered by 826michigan.

Descripción HarperCollins Publishers Inc. Paperback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, Blue Collar, White Collar, No Collar: Stories of Work, Richard Ford, This vital collection of stories about work will be a lasting chronicle of how Americans are employed, how they find work and leave it, refuse it or scorn it, how it defines, fascinates, frustrates and ennobles us. Richard Ford's anthology is not only compelling, but extremely timely. During this harrowing and protracted economic crisis, unprecedented in the lifetimes of America's current workforce, our jobs have taken on increased significance as a means not only to carve out progress through the tiers of society, but as the key to personal confidence, hope for the future, and faith in the Nation. As unemployment peaks in America and headlines heralding job losses dominate the news media, this collection could not be more relevant or necessary. Contributing writers for "Blue Collar, White Collar, No Collar" range from contemporary Pulitzer Prize winners like Edward P. Jones to iconic short story masters such as Tobias Wolff, and include the voices of many newer writers, such as Lewis Robinson. The stories encompass a wide range of contemporary literary styles, and the writers represent a range of ages, ethnic backgrounds, and geographical locations - the connecting thread is excellence in expression, mastery of form, and ability to inspire.
