    Hillbilly Elegy is a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis - that of white working-class Americans. The decline of this group, a demographic of our country that has been slowly disintegrating over 40 years, has been reported on with growing frequency and alarm but has never before been written about as searingly from the inside. J. D. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hung around your neck.

    The United States has never been entirely sure what to do about race. Alone among the countries in the world, it has attempted to construct not just a state of different tribes, but a nation of them - white and black, Christian and Muslim, and many others, too. Its sense of nationalism has evolved unevenly, slowly incorporating an ever-growing chunk of the people within its borders, and it has made steady progress. Yet 2016 offers reasons for unique alarm.

    In recent months, I’ve frequently found myself in places hit hard by manufacturing job losses, speaking to people affected in various ways. Sometimes, the conversation turns to the conflict people feel between the love of their home and the desire to leave in search of better work.

    "Why I’m Moving Home" is from the March 15, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by J. D. Vance and narrated by Fleet Cooper.

    Hillbilly Elegy is a powerful, riveting memoir that tells us about J.D. Vance’s journey from a young, troubled boy to a graduate of Yale Law School. He grew up in Appalachia - in a small town that was drug-torn and filled with misery. It’s very difficult to discern the discontent and rage coming from the working-class whites in modern America, but this audiobook helps you understand why they behave the way they do. Yes, they may seem like a "bunch of lunatics," but at the end of the day, they are just like us.
