A New York Times Bestseller On March 25, 1911, at quitting time, a fire broke out in the Triangle shirtwaist factory in New York's Greenwich Village. Within minutes the building's upper three stories were consumed. Firemen's ladders weren't tall enough to rescue those trapped inside. In the worst workplace disaster in the city's history, 146 died - 123 of them women. This harrowing yet compulsively readable chronicle of that tragedy is also a vibrant portrait of an entire age.
