Book excerpt: A white woman in a mostly minority male workplace, Swerdlow helped edit a newsletter, Hell on Wheels, and tried to organize for better working conditions, confronting the Kafkaesque Transit Authority bureaucracy and complacent union leadership. This book presents her account that is laden with anecdotes that range from the funny to the absurd.
