Janesville by Amy  Goldstein
Ed’s first review of the year
liked it
What happens to a town when 9000 jobs up and leave? This is a play by play of how a series of families and local leaders respond to a factory closing, leaving it to the reader to judge who’s responsible and who’s hustling harder, which kinda killed it for me. In light of all that’s happened politically since the Great Recession, from 2010 forward and the epilogue could be the book in itself.

What You Are Getting Wrong About Appalachia by Elizabeth Catte
What You Are Getting Wrong About Appalachia by Elizabeth Catte
Ed’s last review of the year
really liked it
A public historian gives a concise overview of working class central Appalachia, at times veering towards academic in tone but a take down of JD Vance’s Hillbilly Elegy and outsider thinkpieces about Trump Country.
