Dyehouse (Paperback) (Mena Calthorpe)
about this item
Written with unerring skill and insight, a masterly portrait of postwar Australia. As industrial work was radically transformed by new technologies, society changed with it. Mena Calthorpe—who herself worked in a textile factory—takes us inside this world, vividly bringing to life the people of an inner-Sydney company in the mid-1950s: the bosses, middlemen and underlings; their dramatic struggles and their loves.
This powerful and affecting novel was first published in 1961, and is the hundredth book in the Text Classics series. Introduced by Fiona McFarlane, acclaimed author of The Night Guest.
