A poignant examination of the dignity, striving, and resilience that define the people in America’s “Back Row.” Author Chris Arnade takes the reader on a cross-country journey to explore those left behind. From drug dens and homeless tent camps to the corner McDonald’s, Arnade reveals hidden-in-plain-sight stories that cut across lines of race, ethnicity, and religion. Along the way, he exposes the “Front Row” elites who mock the Back Row’s life choices and values.
