Do you want some pie, boy? - Pigdog Journal

     
 

Does anyone care about being wrong about Appalachia?

TLDR
 
The future of e-zines may be in ratbag ventures such as Pigdog Journal.
-- Richard Poe (Canadian)

 

Elizabeth Catte's new book What You Are Getting Wrong About Appalachia promises to tell readers that whatever they learned from reading Hillbilly Elegy is wrong.

I downloaded and read the free Kindle sample. The sample was a long rant about how at least 20% of Appalachia is comprised of people who are either not rednecks, not white, or both.

Thanks to the free Kindle sample, I now know that I don't need to read a whole book to explain that. Now that you've read my summary, you don't even have to read the sample.

Time saved! You're welcome!

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
