Hillbilly Elegy by J. D. Vance

Hillbilly Elegy

 

Hillbilly Elegy is a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis – that of white working-class Americans.  The decline of this group, a demographic of our country that has been slowly disintegrating over forty years, has been reported on with growing frequency and alarm but has never before been written about as searingly from the inside.  J. D. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hung around our neck.
