I really enjoyed this book about Isaac Singer and the history of the sewing machine. This piece of non-fiction reads like a novel, in large part because the author provides the context of what the author tells us was happening in society at the same time.
(The book was written in 1977.) Chapters include the early life of Singer, the developments of the sewing machine by others, the lawsuits against Singer and the other inventors, the popularization of the machine, the later life of Singer, and information about Singer's heirs.
I would recommend this book to anyone with interest in history, Singer, sewing machines, or open to trying a new book on a not-so-common topic.
