Most widely held works by Michael Ruby
The reluctant spy : my secret life in the CIA's war on terror by John Kiriakou( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Reluctant Spy, Kiriakou takes readers into the fight against an enemy fueled by fanaticism. He chillingly describes what it was like inside the CIA headquarters on the morning of 9/11, the agency leaders who stepped up and those who protected their careers. And in what may be the book's most shocking revelation, he describes how the White House made plans to invade Iraq a full year before the CIA knew about it--or could attempt to stop it
American songbook by Michael Ruby( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Poetry. The poems in AMERICAN SONGBOOK are based on phrases from more than fifty 20th century songs. The singers range from Memphis Minnie to Tupac Shakur, and songs from Louis Armstrong's hit "What a Wonderful World" to Hattie Ellis's "Desert Blues," a little-known Lomax prison recording. Many musical traditions inform the poems, including blues, jazz, gospel, country, folk, bluegrass, electric blues, R & B, rock, disco and hip hop."In their careful reading of real and imaginary signs these poems bring peripheral and liminal perception into focus. At the intersection of form and voice--of how something can be said and what meaning might intend--Michael Ruby folds everyday utterance into astonishing fact. These plaintive and destabilized voicings offer the necessary means to discover what is immediately before us."--Peter Gizzi"--

While the poems in the title sectionare realized in direct contemplation of the Lower Manhattan skyline from Brooklyn--"The North Tower Blinks All Night"--They are as much a matter of reflection off the surface of a vocabulary, as we each are. --Sam Truitt
