Poetry. Fiction. Art. Subtitled "America's Working Poor in Stories, Poems, and Photos." Contributors to this volume come from all over the U.S., bringing to their writing diverse experiences involving community work or lived experience with social challenge. In her "Recipe for Wanda Coleman" contributor Coleman writes: "Take 18 years in the racist Los Angeles School System during the 50's-60's, add a thatch of hair that always goes back to Africa and a body that bursts all seams, stir in a tablespoon of allergic dermatitis, a pinch of honesty, a cup of chopped integrity and a half pint of Edgar Allen Poe." Contributors include Paul Allen, Mary E. Weems, Larry Smith, A.D. Winans, Victoria Rivas, and more.
