"The work explored by the authors in this volume is courageous, flawed, hopeful, pragmatic and above all available: to what David Diamond calls a `piercing through, going over, under, around the culture of monologue that surrounds us'... to `the poetry in the speech of ordinary people' (Brookes). All of those individuals writing or represented in this volume---all of us drawn to this work---'have clearly put our hands to the wheel."---From the Introduction by Julie Salverson --
