Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis (Korean Edition)

힐빌리의 노래: 위기의 가정과 문화에 대한 회고


From a former marine and Yale Law School graduate, a powerful account of growing up in a poor Rust Belt town that offers a broader, probing look at the struggles of America’s white working class
"Hillbilly Elegy" is a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis—that of white working-class Americans. The decline of this group, a demographic of our country that has been slowly disintegrating over forty years, has been reported on with growing frequency and alarm, but has never before been written about as searingly from the inside. J. D. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hung around your neck.


아마존닷컴 종합 1위, 「뉴욕타임스」 논픽션 1위, 빌 게이츠와 소설가 김훈이 추천한 화제의 책. 빈곤과 무너져가는 가족, 그 어둠 속에서 일어선 한 청년의 진솔한 성장기. '힐빌리'는 미국의 쇠락한 공업 지대인 러스트벨트 지역에 사는 가난하고 소외된 백인 하층민을 가리키는 표현이다.

저자 J. D. 밴스는 힐빌리 출신의 32살 청년으로, 약물 중독에 빠진 어머니와 수없이 바뀌는 아버지 후보자들, 그리고 다혈질에 괴팍한 성미를 가졌지만 손자를 누구보다 사랑하는 조부모 밑에서 자라며 윤리와 문화의 붕괴, 가족 해체, 미래에 대한 체념, 소외와 가난이라는 현실을 마주하게 된다. 그리고 이런 현상이 인간의 삶에 미치는 영향을 자신의 짧은 삶의 궤적에 투영해 이 책을 펴냈다.
