Product description


[A] devastating, revelatory book.--Timothy R. Smith

Some readers will come because they're enamored of road narratives, but Bruder's study should be of interest to anyone who cares about the future of work, community, and retirement.--Peter C. Baker

A remarkable book of immersive reporting.... Bruder is an acute and compassionate observer.--Margaret Talbot

This is an important book.... A calmly stated chronicle of devastation. But told as story after story, it is also a riveting collection of tales about irresistible people--quirky, valiant people who deserve respect and a decent life.--Louise Erdrich, author of Future Home of the Living God and The Round House

Bruder is a poised and graceful writer.--Parul Sehgal

A first-rate piece of immersive journalism.

Stirring reportage.

At once wonderfully humane and deeply troubling, the book offers an eye-opening tour of the increasingly unequal, unstable, and insecure future our country is racing toward.--Astra Taylor

Important, eye-opening journalism.--Kim Ode

Bruder tells [this] story with gripping insight, detail and candor. In the hands of a fine writer, this is a terrific profile of a subculture that gets little attention, or is treated by the media as a quirky hobby, rather than a survival strategy.--Peter Simon

About the Author

Jessica Bruder is an award-winning journalist whose work focuses on subcultures and the dark corners of the economy. She has written for Harper's Magazine, the New York Times, and the Washington Post. Bruder teaches at the Columbia School of Journalism.
