Descrizione

J.D. Vance’s deeply moving memoir Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis is the story of the author's family in postwar America. J.D. Vance's grandparents moved north to Ohio from the Appalachia Region of Kentucky. Their move was done in the hopes to escape poverty. In Ohio, they raised a proper middle-class family. Their hard work paid off when one of their grandchildren graduated from Yale Law School. This is conventionally a marker of an upward move to success. However, as the Vance family saga continued, most of J.D. Vance's family: his uncle, aunt, grandparents, sister, and his mother were profoundly struggling with the demands of being a middle-class family. They never fully escaped poverty, much less abuse, trauma, and alcoholism. In his book Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis, J.D. Vance writes an honest and passionate personal analysis of the American culture in crisis. His work is an urgent and disturbing explanation of how the American dream was lost for many families like his.
