Description
A number of years ago, Harper moved to northern New York to teach in a small college. Upon his arrival there his department chairman noted his eight-year-old Saab and said, 'You'll be meeting Willie.' Harper spent the next years establishing not only a working relationship but a friendship with Willie. In Working Knowledge, he introduces us to Willie, a mechanic and jack-of-all-trades. With this engaging and insightful profile-part biography, part ethnography, and part photo essay- Harper documents what Willie does and how he does it. Harper's dignified portrait captures a disappearing feature of modern life-the essential human factor in the world of work.
