SEVENTH AVENUE by Dorothy Meyersburg


Email this review


A story of the my side of labor unions and an inside picture of the cheap dress manufacturing on Seventh Avenue, New York. The central figures are a clever woman designer and her boss, with whom she becomes emotionally involved, but both are too essentially fine to betray their home ties. The woman has been forced back into business by financial reverses; she forges to the top again, and the leftish elements in labor crack down on the organization; they move to Georgia, rebuild -- and again the unions are their downfall. The main interest in the story is the human side, but the background has a ring of authenticity, and the rather unsympathetic picture of unions may recommend it to certain types of readers.
