About Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis
by J.D. Vance: Hillbilly Elegy
is both an honest, heartbreaking memoir about what it’s really like to grow up in poverty and strife and a searing, thought-provoking take on the growing class divide in America. Hillbilly Elegy
touches on how, as a country, we got here—and what, must be done to reverse the damage.
As Ivy League–educated lawyer and Sillicon Valley principal J.D. Vance looks back on his childhood in Jackson, Kentucky, and Ohio, he recalls a youth marred by violence, poverty, and substance abuse, but also one of deep love and family loyalty. He tackles difficult questions about social class, upward mobility, and what it means to feel disenfranchised in your own country.
His highly personal account guides readers to an understanding of rural conservatives, and how an entire segment of people transformed from New Deal democrats to right-wing Republicans.
The summary and analysis in this ebook are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of nonfiction.
