The essays in If You're Not Free At Work, Where Are You Free?: Literature and Social Change focus on the interconnection of community/workplace/individual and how literature (and thinking about literature) has a role in social struggles aimed at making that nexus more liberatory. The essays' topics include various social issues in contemporary writing--daily work, narrative, love poems, the teaching (and hence status) of poetry, and postmodernism.

"I take comfort and hope in how humanity's march has ever been toward a freer, happier life for an increasing number of our planet's inhabitants despite the roadblocks encountered and retreats endured."
