Would you recommend any of these books? What’s on your summer reading list?
I recommend Hillbilly Elegy. It's nonfiction written by a novelist who was born and raised in the state he writes about. It's about the Opioid crisis and how it affects the lives of people in the midst of an unforgiving economy, due to closed coal mines; their main livelihood. Finding themselves with no jobs, no hope, and a slew of family problems; they live among town doctors who are too willing to prescribe and hand out pain killers like candy. It's about what happens to a disenfranchised populace dealing with life and death issues, and suffering the consequences of a fate far beyond their control and power.
