TheArtOfWork_PhayePoliakoff-ChenPraise for The Art of Work:

“In these gentle and emotionally honest stories of ordinary people trying to negotiate their way through a world of ambiguity, Phaye Poliakoff-Chen reveals a talent for quietly depicting the centrifugal forces at work in the everyday lives of so many Americans.  All by itself, “The Possom Ride,” which strikes me as being a story that captures the zeitgeist of this hour in our social history like a spirit in a bottle, is worth the price of admission.”
