Memories of Another Day
“Robbins grabs the reader and doesn’t let go…” —Publishers Weekly
From the depths of the poverty-stricken West Virginia coal mines to the heights of power as one of the nation’s most prominent and feared labor organizers, “Big Dan” Huggins is a hero worthy of Harold Robbins’ attention.
Born to a life of violence and tragedy, Dan becomes one of the most powerful and dangerous labor organizers in the country—at the expense of his personal relationships. He’s 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 Dan’s funeral, where his estranged son Jonathan is relieved by his father’s death. But Jonathan is quickly thrust into his father’s role and must return to his father’s 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 perks—and costs—of power.
“His characters are compelling, his dialogue is dramatic, and his style is simple and straightforward.” —The LA Times
