For your final paper, you will write a compare and contrast analysis of JD Vance’s Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis and Ta-Nahisi Coates’s Between the World and Me. While your opinions of these two memoirs is certainly important and valid, you will mainly want to compare and contrast how these two authors address similar topics.

Here are some points of comparison that you may want to use in your essay: • Their experiences as children

• Their experiences in college/what they got out of their individual educations

• What their respective communities are like

• What their respective family lives are like

• How each author addresses the idea of personal responsibility

• Their outlook on divisiveness (racial, political, socioeconomic status, etc.)

• Their hope for the future • Their concept of the American dream • How each author promotes empathy
