The drama of work is examined by Susan Starbird in this provocative collection of quotations and short personal essays. Each vignette is a highlight from her major manuscript on the emotional life of work, extracted from anonymous confessions by tradespeople, artisans, office drones, farmers, entrepreneurs, and working stiffs. The margins are peppered with frightening-but-true remarks made in the workplace. In Starbird’s characteristic lighthearted style, this slim volume explores the question of whether work is therapy, or theater.
