Left Bank Books & Maryville Talks Books welcome St. Louis journalist Sarah Kendzior, who will sign and discuss her new book, The View from Flyover Country: Dispatches from the Forgotten America!
St. Louis–based writer and expert in authoritarian states Sarah Kendzior has been called “a Cassandra in Trumpland,” and is often credited with first predicting Donald Trump’s presidential victory. 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, racism, 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 reading 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 . . . I have rarely come across writing that is as urgent and beautifully expressed."
—Omair Ahmad, The Wire
