nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;Jim Daniels, in his first book of poems, draws upon his experiences in living and working in his native Detroit to present a start, realistic picture of urban, blue-collar life.nbsp; Daniels, his brothers, his father, and his grandfather have all worked in the auto industry, and that background seeps into nearly all these poems. nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;The first of the book’s three sections sketches out this background, then moves into a neighborhood full of people whose lives are so linked to the ups and downs of the auto industry that they have to struggle to find their own lives; in "Still Lives in Detroit, #2," Daniels writes, "There’s a man in this picture.nbsp; / No one can find him."nbsp; The second section contains the "Digger" poems, a series on the lives of a Detroit auto worker and his family which tries to capture the effects of the work on life outside the factory.nbsp; Here, we listen to Digger think, dream, wander on psychological journeys while he moves through his routines, shoveling the snow, mowing the lawn, and so forth.nbsp; In section three, the poems move into the workplace, whether that be a liquor store, a hamburger joint, or a factory. nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;These poems, sometimes dark, sometimes humorous, concentrate on the efforts of workers to rise above the often depressing work of blue-collar or minimum-wage jobs, to salvage some pride and dignity.nbsp; The poems in this book try to give a voice to those who are often shut out of poetry.nbsp; They are important.nbsp; These lives are important, and the poems, more than anything, say that.
