    Around the world, populist movements are gaining traction among the white working class. Meanwhile, members of the professional elite - journalists, managers, and establishment politicians - are on the outside looking in, left to argue over the reasons. Williams explains that many people have conflated "working class" with "poor" - but the working class is, in fact, the elusive, purportedly disappearing middle class. They often resent the poor and the professionals alike. But they don't resent the truly rich.

    Donald Trump can take on the pope without suffering in the polls. Bernie Sanders can promise free college and health care and never have to explain how he’ll pay for them. But Madeline Albright can’t trot out a one-liner she’s used for decades - “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other” - at a Hillary Clinton rally without having to write an apologetic New York Times Op-Ed about it.

    In this book, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet C. K. Williams sets aside the mass of biography and literary criticism that has accumulated around the work and person of Walt Whitman, and attempts to go back to Leaves of Grass as he first encountered it, to explore why Whitman's epic "continues to inspire and sometimes daunt" him. The result is a personal reassessment and appreciation of one master poet by another, as well as an unconventional and brilliant introduction - or reintroduction - to Whitman.

    I'm Trisha. I'm 32 years old, accident-prone, a church secretary, and still single. Never-been-on-a-date kind of single. But that doesn't mean I've never been in love. Until I find the second love of my life, I'll always have my memories of summers past with Aaron, the guy of my dreams, chasing fireflies at twilight. Compared to him, the options at the Highpointe Baptist Church's singles group just add insult to injury.
