Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis – Amazon Books

Hillbilly Elegy is a personal and passionate investigation of a culture in catastrophe—that of white working class Americans. The decline of this group, a demographic of our country that’s 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 societal, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hung around your neck.
