“There’s hardscrabble, and then there’s no-scrabble, when everything in the world is stacked against you. The Last Ballad does honor to those no-scrabble mill workers in North Carolina who risked their lives in 1929 to go on strike for a living wage and the chance at a decent life. Wiley Cash pulls no punches in this gorgeous, gut-wrenching novel, and that’s entirely as it should be for a story of desperate people. In an era when American workers are besieged as they haven’t been since the Great Depression, I can think of no more relevant novel for our times.
