A Short Dance in the Sun
A Short Dance in the Sun by George Benet
"George Benet's book about the San Francisco longshoremen reflects the reality and durability of his life. A Short Dance in the Sun with its love, death and suffering is like a tough piece of leather." - Studs Terkel.
"George Benet's poems and stories hit you like a brawling longshore-man's punch. Unsentimental, sometimes bitter and angry, they come at you with a hard-hitting directness that bespeak an authentic immersion in a lifetime of work and hard-knuckled family blues." - Clancy Sigal.
