"A collection of sharp-edged, humanistic pieces about the American heartland.... Passionate pieces that repeatedly assail the inability of many to empathize and to humanize." (Kirkus)
A groundbreaking audiobook from the St. Louis-based journalist often credited with first predicting Donald Trump’s presidential victory.
In 2015, Sarah Kendzior collected the essays she reported for Al Jazeera and published them as The View from Flyover Country, which became a best seller and garnered praise from readers around the world. Now, The View from Flyover Country is being released with an updated introduction and epilogue that reflect on the ways that the Trump presidency was the certain result of the realities first captured in Kendzior’s essays.
A clear-eyed account of the realities of life in America’s overlooked heartland, The View from Flyover Country is a piercing critique of the labor exploitation, race relations, gentrification, media bias, and other aspects of the post-employment economy that gave rise to a president who rules like an autocrat. The View from Flyover Country is necessary listening for anyone who believes that the only way for America to fix its problems is to first discuss them with honesty and compassion.
“Please put everything aside and try to get ahold of Sarah Kendzior’s collected essays, The View from Flyover Country. I have rarely come across writing that is as urgent and beautifully expressed. What makes Kendzior’s writing so truly important is [that] it...documents where the problem lies, by somebody who lives there.” (The Wire)
“Sarah Kendzior is as harsh and tenacious a critic of the Trump administration as you’ll find. She isn’t some new kid on the political block or a controversy machine.... Rather she is a widely published journalist and anthropologist who has spent much of her life studying authoritarianism.” (Columbia Tribune)
