Michigan writer Bonnie Jo Campbell???s American Salvage is rich with local color and peopled with rural characters who love and hate extravagantly. They know how to fix cars and washing machines, how to shoot and clean game, and how to cook up methamphetamine, but they have not figured out how to prosper in the twenty-first century. Today, Campbell and Lolita Hernandez discuss work and the inner lives of working-class characters in post-industrial America.
