Nomadland : ACADEMY AWARD WINNER: Best Picture, Best Director & Best Actress Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

ACADEMY AWARD WINNER: Best Picture, Best Director & Best Actress Starring Oscar winner Frances McDormand & directed by Chloe Zhao 'Sublimely written' Sunday Times'Scorching, beautifully written, vivid, disturbing (and occasionally wryly funny)' Rebecca Solnit Nomadland tells a revelatory tale of the dark underbelly of the American economy - one which foreshadows the precarious future that may await many more of us.

At the same time, it celebrates the exceptional resilience and creativity of people who have given up ordinary rootedness to survive, but have not given up hope. From the beetroot fields of North Dakota to the campgrounds of California to Amazon's CamperForce program in Texas, employers have discovered a new, low-cost labour pool, made up largely of transient older adults.

These invisible casualties of the Great Recession have taken to the road by the tens of thousands in RVs and modified vans, forming a growing community of nomads. Golden Globes Winner: Best Film, Best Director Bafta Winner: Best Film, Best Director, Best Actress
