on Tape (May
celebrate the recent publication of the seventeenth issue
of our sister journal, Workers Write!, we've chosen
to read one of the stories from that issue, which originally
appeared in The First Line.
52: "A Permanent Vacation" was written by
Chip Jett and first appeared in Volume 19, Issue 1 of
The First Line. It was recently reprinted in issue
17 of Workers Write! Tales from the Changeover
and begins with the first line:
Rooney had been the manager of the Shop & Save for
thirty-eight years, and he wasn't retiring anytime soon.
