Editorial Reviews

Review

“A bold refusal to submit to stereotype.” ―Kirkus Reviews

"A brief, forceful, and necessary correction." ―Frank Guan, Bookforum

"The most damning critique of Hillbilly Elegy." ―Nancy Isenberg, New York Review of Books

"Highlighting decades of suppressed workers' rights movements, as well as prison facilities that still exploit low-cost labor, Catte expands the perspective on Appalachia. Readers will indeed get more right about this slice of the country after reading her book.” ―Cheryl Krocker McKeon, Shelf Awareness

"Succeeds in providing a richer, more complex view of a much-maligned region." ―Publishers Weekly

Review

“Fiercely argued and solidly grounded, this an excellent primer on understanding and resisting the common distortions about Appalachia’s past and present.” ―Anthony Harkins, author of Hillbilly: A Cultural History of an American Icon
