Articles
In this volume, Yale graduate J.D. Vance takes a probing look at America's white working class through his own experiences growing up. He tells a true story of what social, regional and class decline feels like when you were born with it hanging around your neck. As his family's saga plays out, the book shows how his grandparents, aunt, sister and, most of all, his mother struggled profoundly, never fully escaping the legacy of abuse, alcoholism, poverty and trauma.
