ON THE LINE A Story of Class, Solidarity, and Two Women's Epic Fight to Build a Union

by | Read by Daisy Pitkin

Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

This audiobook provides insight into the epic battles often necessary for unions to organize and to protect and improve the lives of workers. Written and narrated by veteran union organizer Daisy Pitkin, the audiobook succeeds because of the author's ability to weave personal stories and extensive historical background into each chapter. Pitkin's performance is surprisingly good, given that she's not a professional narrator. She is able to modulate well and to speak at a pace that keeps the listener focused. In addition, you can hear the agony in her voice when her organizing is unsuccessful. Perhaps the most emotionally wrenching part of the book is Pitkin's detailed description of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in Greenwich Village in 1911 and the epic criminal trial that followed.
