For the epilogue of “Factory Man,” it took three tries for me to find Mary Hunter’s grave. I had itchy chigger bites for weeks after, but it was worth it to me to find her there, forgotten in the Blue Ridge foothills.

  • The New York Times on “Factory Man”:

    This is Ms. Macy’s first book, but it’s in a class with other runaway debuts like Laura Hillenbrand’s “Seabiscuit” and Katherine Boo’s “Behind the Beautiful Forevers”: These nonfiction narratives are more stirring and dramatic than most novels. And Ms. Macy writes so vigorously that she hooks you instantly. You won’t be putting this book down. — Janet Maslin
