Description

"This pedestal of work is insightful and demanding. You will never look at the modern world with the same eyes." -Frank Greenwald, Electrician from Chicago. "I read four poems and I wept. The images culled my heart." -Lane Clemons, New York Taxi Driver. "I told Mom she had to buy this to remind her of when Dad worked the graveyard shift." -Brian Medder Student, Pittsburgh. "I'll use this to keep table seven from wobbling once I'm done reading it underneath the covers with a flashlight." -Janet Habersham, Waitress in Kansas City. "I had to hide a copy from my bunk mate so he would actually sleep at lights out and be up in time for chow." -Private Bobby Masterson, 88M Ft. Eustis. This collection of poetry, prose and art is a salute and celebration of the modern American worker. Generations of unrecognized heroes who wash our cars, mow our lawns, bake our bread, douse our fires, take out our garbage, teach our kids, grow our food, build our houses, mend our roads, and defend our freedom. The American Dream is still there for all of them, hidden in plain sight, riddled with confusion and abandonment. The art found on these pages is a limited collection of mixed medium collages inspired by and created for the works of Marc D. Crepeaux. The images were also largely inspired by what makes life great. This book should be enjoyed by those who enjoy adventure, hard work, pursuing their dreams, and finding out what happens after disappointment. If you've ever picked yourself back up again then you will feel right at home within these pages.
