Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

By the time she dies at age 106, Esther Gottesfeld, the last survivor of the Triangle Shirtwaist fire, has told the story of that day many times. But her own role remains mysterious: How did she survive? Are the gaps in her story just common mistakes, or has she concealed a secret over the years? As her granddaughter seeks the real story in the present day, a zealous feminist historian bears down on her with her own set of conclusions, and Esther's voice vies with theirs to reveal the full meaning of the tragedy.

 

A brilliant chronicle of the event that stood for ninety years as New York's most violent disaster, Triangle forces us to consider how we tell our stories, how we hear them, and how history is forged from unverifiable truths.

Synopsis:

The last living survivor of the notorious 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist fire has told her story countless times. Even so, her death leaves many questions. Are the discrepancies in her various accounts over the years just ordinary human fallacy, or is there a hidden story in Esther's recollections of that terrible day?

Josephine, September 15, 2008 (view all comments by Josephine)
A historical event (the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire), aging, family secrets, and musical DNA combine to tell a very gripping, (but fictional) story about a 106 year old woman who was witness to a seminal event in US womens and labor history.
