about this book

Author Joe Bageant returns to his hometown of Winchester, Virginia at the end of the 20th century and is outraged by how working-class Americans are duped by the American right, neglected by corporate America, and lost in their own misguided haze of fast food, beer, and God.

Praise for Deer Hunting with Jesus:

"Joe Bageant is a brilliant writer. He evokes working class America like no one else. The account of his revisit to his Virginia roots is sobering, poignant, and instructive."
—Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States

"Deer Hunting with Jesus is one of those rare books that is colorful, depressing, hilarious, and biting all at the same time. Joe Bageant has given us a glimpse into the vicious class war that is too often ignored. . . ."
—David Sirota, author of Hostile Takeover
