“An important and timely contribution to studies of working-class culture in this period of economic and social transformation. Sherry Linkon understands the use value of this literature for readers and students, as a way of understanding and negotiating historical changes, small and big, and she writes with deep experience and nuance about the phenomenon."
—Nick Coles, University of Pittsburgh
“While there is a growing canon of scholarly books about working-class and proletarian literatures, there’s nothing else like The Half-Life of Deindustrialization. Linkon’s compelling study opens up a new set of texts and new critical problematics—the aftermath of downsizing, the impact of neoliberalism on everyday life, the politics of memory—with great verve and insight.”
—Joseph Entin, Brooklyn College
