Dustin M. Hoffman and I go way back and I have talked about that so many times that I am running out of stuff to say other than that I am extremely grateful to have him as a friend when things are going well for me and when things aren't going so well.
His book of stories One-Hundred-Knuckled Fist won The Prairie Schooner Book Prize recently and it is an amazing collection that talks about trades' people and their families and how they continue to live in America when the work dries up. The book is, of course, more than that, but I think framing it as a book about Americans who are hurting because they aren't given opportunities to get back on their feet is as good a way as any.
