Product description

Review

‘Brilliant … offers an acute insight into the reasons voters have put their trust in Trump’ Observer

‘Powerful and highly readable account of the light of the poor white Americans in Kentucky’, Books of the Year, Financial Times

‘Essential reading for all yankophiles, politicians and anyone interested in how Donald Trump won over the rust belt to arrive at the White House’, Books of the Year, Sunday Times

‘The memoir gripping America … Vividly articulates the despair and disillusionment of blue-collar America’ Sunday Times

‘A tough-edged elegy for ‘white trash’ hillbilly America’ David Aaronovitch, The Times

‘America’s political system and the white working class have lost faith in each other. ‘Hillbilly Elegy’ offers a starkly honest look at what that shattering of faith feels like for a family who lived through it. You will not read a more important book about America this year’ Economist

‘Vance’s description of the culture he grew up in is essential reading for this moment in history’ David Brooks, New York Times

‘Clear-eyed and nuanced, a powerful antidote to the clamour of news’ The Times

‘With exquisite timing Vance’s ‘Hillbilly Elegy’ offers something profound at this time of political populism … a great insight into Trump and Brexit’ Ian Birrell, Independent

‘I bought this to try to better understand Trump’s appeal to those white working-class people who feel left behind, but the memoir is so much more than that … It’s an important social history/commentary but also a gripping, unputdownable page-turner’ India Knight, Evening Standard

‘A painfully honest account of America’s white underclass by a brilliant young man’ George Osborne, New Statesman

‘A beautiful memoir but it is equally a work of cultural criticism about white working-class America … [Vance] offers a compelling explanation for why it’s so hard for someone who grew up the way he did to make it … a riveting book’ Wall Street Journal

Book Description

The International Bestselling Memoir Coming Soon as a Netflix Major Motion Picture starring Amy Adams and Glenn Close
