Summary, etc.: This Crackerjack Books Box is a Book Club discussion kit which circulates for six weeks.
A passionate and personal analysis of the loss of the American dream for a large segment of this country. The decline of white working-class Americans, a demographic that has been slowly disintegrating over forty years, has been reported on with growing frequency and alarm - but never before written about as searingly from the inside. Former marine and Yale Law School graduate 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.
