Summary
"Written with unerring skill and insight, The Dyehouse is a masterly portrait of post-war Australia, when industrial work was radically transformed by new technologies and 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. The new edition comes with an introduction by Fiona McFarlane, acclaimed author of The Night Guest."
