Harold Robbins, the world's most popular and captivating storyteller, has created what may well be the most significant book ever written about the rise of the labor unions. The 1979 novel, freshly re-released, is the saga of Daniel Boone "Big Dan" Huggins, who rises from poverty and the mines of West Virginia to become the most respected and feared labor organizer in the nation. Daniel's life and death are tied to the challenges and fortunes of American labor. Once he is gone, his youngest son Jonathan must take up the reins of his father's cause, returning to Daniel's roots to better understand the path that led him to his destiny. Robbins has a gift for combining popular fiction with the most pertinent subjects of the twentieth century, to create a snapshot of the time. Relevant, respectful, and very readable, Memories of Another Day proves once again why Harold Robbins' books have sold more copies than any other American writer in history

In Never leave me he shows that the oak-paneled offices of big business, and the expense-account frolics of Madison Avenue hucksters, are not very far removed from Danny Fisher's jungle world. Life in New York's hard-boiled upper income brackets is just as vicious, cruel and deadly as life on the streets of the lower East Side. The smooth words, the expensive clothes, the plush backgrounds, only serve to mask the same frantic drive for material success, and the motto 'I've got mine, to hell with everyone else.' Never leave me is the memorable story of one man from this world and how he almost tore his life to pieces in a frenzy of passion and a hunger for power
