About The Book:
"Besides, the cutting floor was running slow. They were twenty minutes to a half-hour behind schedule. When Nathan had been working on the floor, cutting fabric, they had always made quota. If they didn’t, they’d heard it from the guys upstairs. There were no transistor radios blaring Spanish music and people running to the toilet every hour.
Nathan Perl hadn’t missed a day of work in his life. Since age 11, when he’d arrived in steerage class from Poland and gotten a job sewing curtains on Rivington Street, for $14 a week, which he took home to his uncle Meyer, who had sent the money back to Lodz to pay for the trip, he worked—six days a week, until he got a job as a cutter and the unions kept him out on Saturdays."
His dramatic family saga is lively, fascinating, and encompasses some of the most interesting times in popular culture among the adventures (and misadventures) of the Perl family.
I highly recommend this novel!
