Expanded edition of The Prison Letters of Joe Hill, edited by Phil Foner with additional material compiled by Alexis Buss, released on the 100th anniversary of Hill’s execution by Haymarket Books.
This edition includes several letters Joe Hill wrote while in prison that were not available at the time of the original publication (though it is clear that much of his prison correspondence remains to be discovered), as well as letters and other writings from his arrival in the United States in 1902 until his shooting and subsequent arrest by Salt Lake City police in January 1914. Also includes a number of Joe Hill cartoons, and all of his surviving poems and song lyrics.
“Joe Hill’s influence is everywhere. Without Joe Hill, there’s no Woody Guthrie, no Dylan, no Springsteen, no Clash, no Public Enemy, no Minor Threat, no System of a Down, no Rage Against the Machine.”
Expanded centennial edition of The Prison Letters of Joe Hill, edited by Phil Foner with additional material compiled by Alexis Buss. This expanded edition includes all of Joe Hill’s known writings, from his arrival in the United States to his execution. 132 pages.
