It's a must-read just for its look at what happens at home when we send jobs overseas and how we all play a role. This one is a page-turner."DesignSponge"
A triumph.... Get Factory Man and take your time with it. It's a big ol' delicious toasted sandwich of a book."Kurt Rheinheimer, The Roanoker"
I've been reading Beth Macy for years. She is a great American writer. She sees everything, all the precious detail. A few years back, as the world was collapsing around us, she did a story on the temp who was answering phones at a hotline for those in financial hot water. The temp was this immense hero in all these ways that nobody else would have ever recognized. Of course, Macy never called her a hero. She just let the story do the work."Roland Lazenby, author of Michael Jordan
Beth Macy "got the story of a lifetime. And she wrote this book in the "Seabiscuit" tradition, combining the power of truth-that's-stranger-than-fiction with the colorful verve of a novel."Janet Maslin, New York Times
