Literary Nonfiction. What does it mean to work for a living? Told in short prose, GLASS BRICKS tells the story of Lester's experience working both traditional and non-traditional jobs. Sometimes raw and often humourous, Lester shares stories about learning to work, working, and moving on. GLASS BRICKS explores the significance of our basic human right to work in an era where the struggle to find meaningful, full-time employment is all too real.
