EN SAVOIR PLUS Résumé

I have written this book with the ultimate hope that it might transform a few complainers into dreamers.

So writes David Masciotra in the introduction to this new collection of personal essays written from the working-class heartland of Trump's America. As Masciotra sees it, hope has become subversive." Too many Americans are lost in anxiety, resentment, and fear. Surveys and studies reveal an increasingly bitter, cynical, and angry public pessimistic about politics and their personal lives. One in nine Americans now take antidepressants, and stories of violence, bankruptcy, and corruption dominate the headlines. Too many Americans are convinced that their country's best days are long behind them, that they should lower their ambitions, and that it is normal for both left and right politics to embrace conflicting-but oddly complementary-narratives of decline.

This series of linked personal essays seeks to quietly, but forcefully, push back against the storms of bitterness, division, and negativity dominating national discourse. Masciotra tells of his upbringing in a white-ethnic family in a blue-collar town south of Chicago, a place profoundly exemplary of the "white working class" that played such a prominent role in accounts of the 2016 elections. These essays offer not only a compelling personal narrative but also trenchant political commentary and insights on a wide range of topics including race, sexuality, journalism, academia, marriage, friendship, economic struggle, music, and war.

Masciotra is an important new voice from the left, and in this new book he makes a deliberate choice to emphasize the sustenance we can all find not just in his stories but our own. In doing so, he provides readers with an alternative look at American culture and new inspiration for their own lives."
