On the Job: Fiction about Work O'ROURKE


On the Job: Fiction About Work by Contemporary American Writers. William O'Rourke, 1977.


Work is a national obsession in America. We argue about it, we worry about it, we fight for it. In this collection of fiction, some of America's foremost contemporary authors write about what it's like to be "on the job" as a grocery-store checkout clerk, an independent store owner, a lumberjack, a mailman, a tailor, a prostitute (male and female), a factory worker, a radio newscaster, a reporter, an editor, a literary critic, a TV executive, an army sergeant, a lawyer, a psychiatrist, an intelligence agent, and many others.
