Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by by J. D. Vance - A BookSuma Book Summary.
Please note that this book is not the original audiobook. This audiobook was written and published by BookSuma, and is not affiliated with or endorsed by the original author.
J.D. Vance's Hillbilly Elegy is an examination of what life is really like in Appalachia, the region of the United States covering Alabama to New York. Vance, a former marine and a Yale Law School graduate, chronicles the lives of these poor, white working-class communities who live along the Appalachian Mountains. Vance characterizes these people as "hillbillies," a term many people who live in the region claim proudly for themselves.
Vance brings us a gripping account of growing up in a poor midwestern town. From a broader level, he offers us a unique, penetrating look at the struggles of America's white working class. The timing of his audiobook is appropriate - its publication comes at a time the plight of the white working class has been thrust to the forefront of the country's social and political discourse.
