Beschreibung

A tour de force of storytelling years in the making: a dual biography of two of the greatest songwriters, Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie, that is also a murder mystery and a history of labor relations and socialism, big business and greed in twentieth-century Americawoven together in one epic saga that holds meaning for all working Americans today.When thirteen-year-old Daniel Wolff first heard Bob Dylans &quote,Like a Rolling Stone,&quote, it ignited a life-long interest in understanding the rock poets anger. When he later discovered &quote,Song to Woody,&quote, Dylans tribute to his hero, Woody Guthrie, Wolff believed hed uncovered one source of Dylans rage. Sifting through Guthries recordings, Wolff found &quote,1913 Massacre&quote,a song which told the story of a union Christmas party during a strike in Calumet, Michigan, in 1913 that ended in horrific tragedy. Following the trail from Dylan to Guthrie to an event that claimed the lives of seventy-four men, women, and children a century ago, Wolff found himself tracing the history of an anger that has been passed down for decades. From Americas early industrialized days, an epic battle to determine the countrys direction has been waged, pitting bosses against workers and big business against the labor movement. In Guthries eyes, the owners ultimately won, the 1913 Michigan tragedy was just one example of a larger lost history purposely distorted and buried in time. In this magnificent cultural study, Wolff braids three disparate strandsCalumet, Guthrie, and Dylantogether to create a devastating revisionist history of twentieth-century America. Grown-Up Anger chronicles the struggles between the haves and have-nots, the impact changing labor relations had on industrial America, and the way two musicians used their fury to illuminate economic injustice and inspire change.
