During Sarah Smarsh's turbulent childhood in Kansas in the 1980s and 1990s, the country's wealth gap widened - with Smarsh's family of laborers on the losing end. Through this intergenerational story, Smarsh challenges us to examine the class divide in our country and the myths about people thought to be less because they earn less. Combining memoir with powerful analysis and cultural commentary, Heartland is an uncompromising look at class, identity, and the particular perils of economic hardship in a country known for its excess.
