David Messineo, Publisher of Sensations magazine., rates attention.
Organized labor is an ambitious first collection by Daniel P. Quinn, which covers four generations of American and family history, from the birth of his grandmother in NYC in 1887 to the fall of the Twin Towers in 2001. Like much of the poetry in this 46-page volume, the book's title has multiple allusions: from poems that deal with the organized labor movement in America (most notably, the 1913 strike of 20,000 Paterson silk workers at Botto House in Haledon, NJ), to the labor of organizing--and reconciling--past and present (captured eloquently in the title poem, 'Organized Labor'), to even the labor of preparing one's poetry for publication.
