Publisher's Summary

Pittsburgh has recently (and more than once) been called the most livable city in America; yet the old image of smoky skies and steel mills spewing forth grit has never quite disappeared. Its history as a dirty industrial center is a part of its residents, a part of their toughness. The people of the steel city fight. Includes brand-new stories by Stewart O'Nan, Hilary Masters, Lila Shaara, Rebecca Drake, Kathleen George, Paul Lee, K. C. Constantine, Nancy Martin, Kathryn Miller Haines, Terrance Hayes, Carlos Delgado, Aubrey Hirsch, Tom Lipinski, and Reginald McKnight.

The complete list of narrators includes Gabra Zackman, Jennifer Van Dyck, Christopher Kipiniak, Kevin Free, Suzanne Toren, Ben Bartolone, Johnny Heller, Jonathan Davis, David Ledoux, Gary Dikeos, Allyson Johnson, and Joe Barrett.

Overall good

The quality varies widely, but it's mostly good. The stories and vocals usually match well, but there's some real stinkers.

I wanted to love it

Would you try another book from Kathleen George (editor) and/or the narrators?

Kathleen George as an author- definitely. This group of narrators- no

Would you ever listen to anything by Kathleen George (editor) again?


Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?


Any additional comments?

I wanted to love it. I didn't. Some of the narrators were not very good, others were downright terrible and it made listening painful.
