“Despite its subject matter, Sacco’s work glows with warmth, humanity, and even humor, but it also has an undercurrent of urgency—like it’s shaking us by the lapels, insisting that we pay attention.”
“The portraits . . . are powerful, and Sacco’s graphic artistry is compelling.”
“While the statistics and situations . . . [Hedges and Sacco] report on are shocking enough, the illustrations, which are often combined with a local’s first-hand account, add gravitas to the stories.”
“A heartfelt, harrowing picture of post-capitalist America.”
“An unabashedly polemic, angry manifesto that is certain to open eyes, intensify outrage and incite argument about corporate greed. . . . A call for a new American revolution, passionately proclaimed.”
