Book Review — Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis

This one cut both ways for me. The Kentucky stuff was good. The Ohio stuff…not so much. I just didn’t buy into the straight-line connection between being born a Hillbilly and growing up in a dysfunctional family with an emotionally unstable, drug addicted mother. It’s a tough life no matter where you trace your roots. Glad he made it out, but not sure about the whole “Culture in Crisis—that of white working-class Americans.” (3 of 5 Stars)
