Overview


Poetry. These fourteen second-person poems collectively portray the life of Digger, the Detroit automobile factory worker featured in Daniels's earlier books. In this collection, Digger, now middle aged, confronts issues in his life such as downsizing, his own mortality, the changing racial composition of his neighborhood, and the trajectory or life. DIGGER'S BLUES is both deceptively straight-forward and acerbically witty, as evidenced in "Digger on the Nature Trail": "You're going to have to do something about money soon. You got an A in outdoor chef, but so did everybody else. Maybe that means your school had the best goddamn burger chefs in the world, but you think it means something else." Perfectbound.
