Baraka Books launches Maker by Jim Upton, in conversation with Elise Moser.
Forced to forego her dream of swimming in the Olympics, Nicole Fortin finds work in a Montreal aerospace plant to support herself and her daughter. Drawn into a bitter labour conflict that stretches workplace and family ties to the breaking point, she finally comes into her own in this vivid account of industrial strife.
“Jim Upton’s page-turning novel Maker is a fast-paced look inside the anatomy of a bitter strike in Montreal’s aerospace industry. The author brilliantly captures the tensions and fears that run through the minds of every striking worker and the enormous pressure loaded onto the shoulders of every bargaining committee member. An excellent read!” Sid Ryan, Former President of the Ontario Federation of Labour
