Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century by Jessica Bruder is a compelling work of immersive journalism describes the lives of nomadic workers who travel from one temporary job to another (including Fallon) to make ends meet. Working long hours at beet harvests and walking miles in Amazon warehouses, these mostly older Americans live in their RVs, cars, or vans and represent an increasing population of
migrant workers living just this side of homelessness. Author Jessica Bruder provides both a critique of our current economy and a celebration of human resourcefulness and resilience.
