Blue Bubblegum is the second book in a series of sticky literature written for the struggles connected to working-class poor people. William A. Gonzalez eliminates all 3rd party perspectives by wrapping authentic direct truth into the context he scribes for his people. Scribed into this piece of tree are stories, poetry, prose, quotes, and haikus pasted together through art. Whether you are a Blue-collar worker, a son or daughter of a modern-day slave, or considered invisible within America—these scribes are dedicated to you. “It is very simple to keep stepping over a voice stuck inside cold Bubblegum that sleeps on top of concrete asphalt; to scrape this Bubblegum off the ground you must first melt it—only then can you sing for that voice.”
