Have you read Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance? It seems like everyone has been reading and talking about this book, which came out late last year. The popularity rose no doubt due to the heightened political climate in the U.S. at the time (plot twist: the heightened political climate will never end. we are trapped in that creepy part of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory where Willy Wonka loses his shit on the boat). If you’re interested, my review of the book is on Thought Catalog now.
