author of There Are No Children Here
A remarkable piece of reportage about
a tucked-away corner of America...
It's one compelling read.
A magnificent tour de force...An insider's
narrative that grips from the start.
The New York Times
Mesmerizing...The artistry of this frank, enthralling book lies in the utter simplicity -- and careful, subtle selectivity -- with which LeBlanc plainly describes the determining events in what will now be unforgettable lives.
Keenly observed, pitch-perfect...A dense, rich narrative that reads like a novel.
Los Angeles Times
A nonfiction Middlemarch of the underclass...A new benchmark in the field of immersion journalism.
