Reviews
"The author of Heartland returns with a collection of pieces that illuminate the plights and humanity of her working-class subjects. This collection's impact is staggering, and [with] a distinct style, Smarsh's voice is constant, studied, and compassionate. This powerful reckoning with the costs of being poor should be required short-form nonfiction reading."
