“Kristof and WuDunn know there are no easy solutions here, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take action, whether by pushing for better policies, or changing our own attitudes.” – Bono

“A deft and uniquely credible exploration of rural America, and of other left-behind pockets of our country.” – Tara Westover, author of Educated

Renowned for their tireless advocacy of human rights and giving a voice to the voiceless, Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn now issue a plea to address the crisis in working-class America, while also focusing on solutions to mend a half-century of governmental failure. Authors of the new book Tightrope: Americans Reaching for Hope, they have previously co-written the bestselling books Half the Sky, A Path Appears, China Wakes and Thunder from the East. Together, the husband-wife team has won a Pulitzer for journalism for their coverage of China’s Tiananmen Square democracy movement. Their work is the subject of two full programs created by Oprah Winfrey, and Half the Sky and A Path Appears each inspired a prime time PBS documentary series.
