Glass, Paper, Beans: Revelations on the Nature & Value of Ordinary Things
Leah Hager Cohen (au). As technology makes certain kinds of information more accessible, other connections are irrevocably lost. Here Cohen traces three simple commodities on their geographic & semantic journey from her table to their various points of origin. She provides intimate portraits of three workers -- Ruth Lamp, a nightshift supervisor at the Anchor Hocking glass factory in Ohio; Brent Boyd, a 3rd-generation lumberjack from Canada; & Basilion Salinas, a man who tends the coffee trees at Pluma Hidalgo, Mexico. Cohen braids the lives of these three unforgettable workers as she traces the origins, myths, & manufacture of glass, paper, & the beloved coffee bean.
