Hillbilly Elegy

Sociology, poverty, stereotypes, access to knowledge, and interactions with the working class weave through this memoir. I love the way J.D. Vance reaches out his hand in the introduction and like the Ghost of Christmas Past, shares what is and what can be- to help define what is. Anyone interested in current working class politics will find new insights and unravel old understandings by reading this memoir. The real struggles of communities in Appalachia and beyond are important stories, and would have such impact to contemporary economic discourse. A long overdue conversation. #HillbillyElegy

  1. Hello I am author Benjamin Boyd. I would love it if you could do a review of my book. The Adventures of Kid Humpty Dumpty. I think you and your followers would enjoy it. I will gladly provide you with a copy of my book for your honest review. You can get a preview of my book on My book is The Adventures of Kid Humpty Dumpty. Kids and adults will love entering into this fun, imaginative world. Young Humpty Dumpty wants to make friends with a new kid in town, but there is just a few problems. The first is Humpty Dumpty is way too nervous to talk to her and the second is the very anti-boy and very over the top sunny side twins. It is a funny Heart warming story of this famous and very clumsy egg adventures show that he is just like you and me. It all takes place in colorful and fun world where anything is possible.
    It makes a great bed time story with characters that kids can relate to and grow to love because the already love them. Every kid and adult has heard the rhyme of how he fell from the wall but with this they can see a beautiful world with lots of egg people and it just something that jumps out at the imagination. Thank You for your time. I look forward to hearing from you. You can contact me at
