An illuminating read. I am trying to clarify the connection between racism and class conflict in the USA. This tracks the development of white working class identity from colonial times to the present with a focus on rural USA. A great complement to ...more

Found this title in the bibliography of Wages of Whiteness. A terrific, enlightening book. The symbiosis of oppression.

“And rather impressive – I want to be bourgeois and ask how you find time for five children, a husband and a lover?”
Edmund de Waal, The Hare with Amber Eyes: A Family's Century of Art and Loss

Martha Graham
“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. ... No artist is pleased. [There is] no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others”
Martha Graham

Edmund de Waal
“How objects are handed on is all about story-telling. I am giving you this because I love you. Or because it was given to me. Because I bought it somewhere special. Because you will care for it. Because it will complicate your life. Because it will make someone else envious. There is no easy story in legacy. What is remembered and what is forgotten?”
Edmund de Waal, The Hare With Amber Eyes: A Family's Century of Art and Loss

Edmund de Waal
“The problem is that I am in the wrong century to burn things. I am the wrong generation to let it go.”
Edmund de Waal, The Hare With Amber Eyes: A Family's Century of Art and Loss

Edmund de Waal
“Stories and objects share something, a patina...Perhaps patina is a process of rubbing back so that the essential is revealed...But it also seems additive, in the way that a piece of oak furniture gains over years and years of polishing.”
Edmund de Waal, The Hare With Amber Eyes: A Hidden Inheritance
