This nonfiction narrative, that hit bookstores Tuesday, will hook readers as Macy portrays the effects of globalization on Bassett Furniture Co., a company that was once the world’s largest wood furniture manufacturer. This David and Goliath story is about how one furniture company battles China’s price rigging and the forces of globalization.
