In Speaking of Work, part of Project: SET THE PAGE FREE, thirteen writers and creative minds come together to tell the ultimate story of the modern workplace. These authors, poets, and singer-songwriters give us a guided tour of the places that inspire them. There's mystery here. Dark confessions. Tales of deals made, careers built and broken, and the love and dread and hope of being at work.
