A Note about Philip Levine

In Philip Levine's poetry collections up to A Walk with Tom Jefferson (1998), the "Note About the Author" included the phrase "a succession of stupid jobs" to refer to what he spent his time doing in Detroit before he "left the city for good."

But starting with What Work Is (1991), that part of his biography had been rephrased as "a succession of industrial jobs."
