Below is a word cloud of the text in Rust Belt Chic: The Cleveland Anthology. The words, from big to small, well, they fit. They are the words from a city into a city’s minds and then back out again into a collective literature for the city to read. The words, from big to small:
Cleveland. City. People. New. Rust. Belt. Live. Time. Place. Years. Home. Work. Life. Wanted. Neighborhood. Old. Come. Love. Little. Friends. Street. House. Play. Look. Art. Building. Things. Used. Started. American. Industrial. Black. White. Right. Away. Going. Started. Feel. Felt. Steel. Stress. Father. Mother. End. Born.
(oh, and tiny Pittsburgh to boot.)
