?ποια ταλέντα και να έχω βρέθηκα ένα μόλις βήμα πριν απ’ το γκρεμό έως ότου μερικοί άνθρωποι μ’ έσωσαν χάρη στην αγάπη τους»Αφοπλιστικά ειλικρινές σχεδόν ξεγυμνωτικό το Τραγούδι του χιλμπίλη είναι ένα αφήγημα αμείλικτα σκληρό και ταυτόχρονα μια ωδή στην πίστη και την αγάπη Δεν είναι απλώς η δραματική προσωπική ιστορία ενός παιδιού που γίνεται άντρας Δεν είναι απλώς το χρονικό μιας διαλυμένης οικογένειας Είναι κι η αδυσώπητη ψυχογραφία μιας παραγνωρισμένης κοινωνικής τάξης που με διαφορετική μορφή μπο­ρούμε να την εντοπίσουμε σχεδόν σε κάθε χώρα Στην Α. I'll be honest I didn't totally finish the book before giving up I hear Vance on NPR and the story caught my attention Yet what I thought would be a better analysis of American economics and poverty proved to be very different It's one of those conservative love stories of I got my shit together so everyone can While I respect the struggle Vance had I also believe it's a very naive picture of what is going on It explains why people FEEL a way It does not explain the systemic issues that are also at play Skip it if you want anything profound

Hillbilly Elegy A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisisμερική τούς λένε χιλμπίληδες λευκά σκουπίδια Αλλού τους λένε αλλιώς Το σί­γουρο είναι πως η τάξη αυτή έχει επανέλθει βροντερά στο προσκήνιο προκαλώντας ξάφνιασμα ακατανοησία και τρόμοΤο Τραγούδι του χιλμπίλη μιλά για το θυμό την παραίτηση την αυτο­εγκατάλειψη Μιλά για πάθη παράφορα που καταστρέφουν ζωές Μιλά για το πόσο βαθιά μάς σημαδεύουν οι εξωτερικές συνθήκες της ζωής μας ― η οικογένεια ο περίγυρος η εποχή Μιλά όμως και γι’ ανθρώπους που κόντρα στα προγνωστικά κατάφεραν να μείνουν όρ­θιοι και βρήκαν το κουράγιο να πάρουν τη μοίρα τους στα χέρια του. People talk about hard work all the time in places like Middletown You can walk through a town where 30 percent of the young men work fewer than twenty hours a week and find not a single person aware of his own lazinessWhy is this guy the darling of the talk show circuit right now He thinks his fellow hillbillies just need to work harder Problem solved He thinks because he made it everyone else should be able to do the same He asserts social programs won't help his lazy people but then is short on solutions There is a cultural movement in the white working class to blame problems on society or the government and that movement gains adherents by the dayTrue so when he is asked in interviews and by the media about Trump's appeal he needs to be honest He indicates that it is because Trump is a political outsider not part of the political elite speaks to their issues sounds like one of them He doesn't talk about the racism xenophobia that is much a part of his people That is also part of Trump's appeal needs to be included in his narrative

Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis review í eBook or Kindle ePUB ½ αναμνήσεις μιας οικογένειας και μιας κοινωνίας σε κρίση«Ήμουν ένα απ’ αυτά τα παιδιά με το δυσοίωνο μέλλον Παναμνήσεις μιας οικογένειας και μιας κοινωνίας σε κρίση«Ήμουν ένα απ’ αυτά τα παιδιά με το δυσοίωνο μέλλον Παραλίγο να παρατήσω το λύκειο Παραλίγο να παραδοθώ κι εγώ σ’ εκείνη τη βα­θιά οργή και πίκρα που έχει καταλάβει τους πάντες γύρω μου Σήμερα οι άνθρωποι με βλέπουν με την ωραία μου δουλειά και τα λαμπερά μου πτυχία και φαντάζονται πως είμαι κάποιου είδους ιδιοφυΐα ― ότι μονάχα ένας εξαιρετικά προικισμένος άνθρωπος θα μπορούσε να φτάσει εδώ που έφτασα εγώ Με κάθε σεβασμό προς τους ανθρώπους αυτούς πιστεύω ότι η θεωρία αυτή είναι μια βλακεία και μισή ?. 2016 is the year of Donald Trump and JD Vance's Hillbilly Elegy should be at the top of every politico and thought leader's reading list living in the Acela corridor Vance is both an excellent writer and a thoughtful person—and when combined with a compelling story he's able to shed some light on the lives of those living on the other side of the Appalachian MountainsLet's start with what this book isn't It's not an explanation of why Donald Trump is the Republican nominee or at least not directly Nor is it a guide for how to alleviate Appalachian poverty Vance is too smart to offer simplistic explanations or solutions Rather it is one man's experience living in the culture of Appalachia and placing his experience in the broader context of American society It is the fact that he doesn't try to do too much that makes this book as compelling as it isVance grew up in southeastern Ohio and eastern Kentucky largely raised by his grandmother Mamaw and having a complicated relationship with his family members Hillbilly Elegy is a story that demonstrates the full measure of the brokenness that wracks Appalachia but it is also a story that exemplifies the depths of familial love and opportunityVance's description of Yale Law School is interesting because while he portrays it as an institution in which he feels out of place very few people from poor backgrounds go to Yale Law School he also was afforded the opportunity to go there That tension—the fact that he managed to beat the odds while still acknowledging the deep cultural divide between elite institutions and wide swaths of middle America the region of the United States sometimes derisively referred to as flyover country—pervades the book and ultimately makes it such an important bookFor that tension exists not merely in the people like Vance who have a foot in both worlds—one in southeastern Ohio with his hillbilly family and the other in downtown San Francisco working for an investment fund It also exists in the United States writ large as college educated urbanites express confusion at the values of those outside of their spheres There are therefore two Americas—one divided less by race or geography though those certainly matter but by class and values In order to break down those barriers we need books like Hillbilly Elegy and people like Vance to help us build bridges across those cultural barriers we have today
