Hillbilly Elegy

By J.D. Vance

Hillbilly Elegy is a book about perserverance. J.D. Vance grew up with his hillbilly grandparents and drug-addicted mother. Through all the hardships that life brought to him, he went on to become a Marine and Yale Law School graduate. This memoir shares deeply personal life stories. While some are very difficult and illustrate the hardships of the poor working class, the book is also riddled with heartwarming stories depicting strong family bonds.

If you are an audio book fan, the author narrates the book, which adds even more heart and character to his stories.
