From the depths of the poverty-stricken West Virginia coal mines to the heights of power as one of the nationâs most prominent and feared labor organizers, âBig Danâ Huggins is a hero worthy of Harold Robbinsâ attention. Recognized as one of the worldâs most captivating storytellers, Robbins has written what is arguably the most significant book ever published about the rise of the labor unions in America.
Born to a life of violence and tragedy, Dan becomes one of the most powerful and dangerous labor organizers in the countryâat the expense of his personal relationships. Heâs a man who embraced violence, fierce ambition, lust and a deep hunger for justice even as he accumulated personal wealth, fame and power. The novel opens at Danâs funeral, where his estranged son Jonathan is relieved by his fatherâs death. But Jonathan is quickly thrust into his fatherâs role and must return to his fatherâs origins to better understand the man who shaped his past and continues to shape his future. Looking into the lives and childhoods of both father and son, Memories of Another Day gives a close look into the perksâand costsâof power.
Robbinsâ gift for combining popular fiction with the most pertinent subjects of the twentieth century allowed him to create a snapshot in time. In this novel, Robbins creates a magnificent epic portrait of fifty years of the bitter birth and tarnished maturity of American labor. Relevant, respectful, and engaging, Memories of Another Day proves once again why Harold Robbinsâ books have sold more copies than almost any other American writer in history.
