Stunning and beautifully written. . . brilliant and haunting--Arlie Russell Hochschild
You will never forget the people whose stories Bruder tells. Proud, resourceful, screwed-over, funny and in so many ways admirable, the American nomads Bruder lived with and reports on have sometimes lost everything but their bravado . . . . [She] tells their stories with humanity and wit.--Louise Erdrich, author of Future Home of the Living God
"Bruder is a poised and graceful writer."--Parul Sehgal
[A] devastating, revelatory book.--Timothy R. Smith
Some readers will come because they're enamored of road narratives, but Bruder's study should be of interest to anyone who cares about the future of work, community, and retirement.--Peter C. Baker
[I]mportant, eye-opening journalism.--Kim Ode
[A] powerhouse of a book. . . . In the best immersive-journalism tradition, Bruder records her misadventures driving and living in a van. . . . Visceral and haunting reporting.
