“Hillbilly Elegy” by J.D. Vance

A poignant account of growing up in a poor Appalachian town, this book offers a broader, probing look at the strug-gles of America’s white working class. Delving into his own personal story and drawing on a wide array of sociological studies, Vance takes us deep into working class life in the Appalachian region. This demographic of our country has been disintegrating for over 40 years and Vance provides an attempt to understand when and how “hillbillies” lost faith in any hope of u pward mobility and opportunities to come.
