The American Dream

This fascinating memoir of growing up “hillbilly” and being part of the white working class takes you into an invisible and forgotten segment of the U.S. culture. Hillbilly Elegy is a story about love, loyalty, conflicting cultures, the struggle to survive, and the effect it has on the people who live it. J.D. Vance brings this world vividly to life and I felt like I was right there with him and his memorable family while reading this riveting memoir. You will not soon forget this book!
