Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion (Hardcover)

by Elizabeth L. Cline

The Bulldozing Powers of Cheap 3

Story of My People is an angry, eloquent, and beautifully written book, a hybrid of memoir and social commentary that took Italy’s prestigious Strega prize in 2011. This is a story about a man who loved his company and had to sell it, but this story is a microcosm for the decline of the Italian textiles industry and, more broadly, for the decline of manufacturing in the first world as industry has turned to cheaper labor markets elsewhere.
