Hillbilly Elegy
Hillbilly Elegy A Memoir of A Family and Culture in Crisis By Vance, J. D. Book - 2016

It is amazing the author turned out to be a seemingly functional, apparently successful, human being, given the rough circumstances of his upbringing. Sadly, his upbringing is all too common in most of the US and creates real challenges for the children living this way to find a way out of the sad state of "normal" in which they find themselves. I read this because it was hyped so much, but it was really difficult to read because his reality seemed so dismal.
