Hillbilly Elegy is a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis – that of poor white Americans. The disintegration of this group has been reported with growing frequency. But never before has it been written as searingly from the inside. J.D. Vance ( a former Marine and a Yale Law school graduate) tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hanging around your neck. A deeply moving memoir, Hillbilly Elegy is the story of how upward mobility really feels. And it is an urgent and troubling meditation on the loss of the American dream for a large segment of this country.
