What do you do, and how do you do it?


Blue Collar, White Collar, No Collar: Stories of Work is an anthology of short stories edited by Richard Ford that chronicle the ways in which our jobs–what we “do”–is inextricably intertwined with how we define ourselves–who we “are”.

This collection of stories leads us through a literary realm in which we can consider the “hazy space between what we do and what we think we can do.” How do you reconcile your job with other facets of your life?
