    1. A re-read of one of my favorite books of poetry, which I haven't read in a long time. Daniels grew up in Detroit, and these poems tell stories about being working class, about being white in a city with a high black population and a lot of racial tension, and about the people who work on the line in the automotive factories. They're sort of what a friend of mine called "guy poems," but they're never stupidly macho and Daniels doesn't really romanticize anything. A great, powerful collection.
