SEIDMAN AND SON

A warm human novel radiates about a family impasse in the life of dress manufacturer Morris Seidman, one-time menial for $14 per week, who now has 200 employees and a happy home life. But his success in the Seventh Avenue garment district madhouse sets up the barrier between Morris and his son Harold, full of bitterness at the world of success after Korea. Father and son clash at home, in the shop, both profoundly disturbed by their misunderstanding, both uncertain. Many young readers will understand this portrayal of the tensions between the generations.
