True Country

At the recommendation of a friend of Books Here And There, I have begun to read J.D. Vance’s memoir about life in Appalachia, Hillbilly Elegy.  Almost from the first page, I began to see connections between Vance’s exploration of his roots and other books of our common experience.  When I am finished reading it, I’ll post a longer essay about it.  For now, I believe you will enjoy Pam Kirst’s placement of it within her own frame of reference.
