What's your favorite book about work in America?
It might be The Grapes of Wrath, The Help, or The Feminine Mystique. Maybe The Jungle, or How to Win Friends and Influence People.
The U.S. Department of Labor is compiling a list of "books that shaped work in America," and is seeking the public's help in expanding the list. There are almost 100 already, including three Willa Cather novels: My Antonia, O Pioneers! and The Song of the Lark.
It's hard to pick a favorite from the list, but mine might be Studs Terkel's Working. As a journalist I admire the way he got people to open up about their feelings about their work.
What's your favorite? What's missing from the list?
