Review: Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis

Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

An intriguing exploration of a social class that's often overlooked: the hillbilly, hill-people, white-trash...

Vance's honest chronicle of growing up in a working poor Appalachian family serves a both an endearing memoir simultaneously filled with humor and upheaval and social commentary that should be essential reading for everyone.
