Waterstones Says

A riveting account of the older Americans who have abandoned a settled life to follow low-paid jobs across the country, Nomadland is at once a searing depiction of desperation amidst the madness of the US economy and a tribute to the enterprise and resilience of the American people. 

The inspiration for the film Nomadland starring Frances McDormand, winner of the Best Picture Oscar & the BAFTA for Best Film.

From the beetroot fields of North Dakota to the campgrounds of California to Amazon’s CamperForce program in Texas, employers have discovered a new, low-cost labour pool, made up largely of transient older adults. These invisible casualties of the Great Recession have taken to the road by the tens of thousands in RVs and modified vans, forming a growing community of nomads.

Nomadland tells a revelatory tale of the dark underbelly of the American economy – one which foreshadows the precarious future that may await many more of us. At the same time, it celebrates the exceptional resilience and creativity of people who have given up ordinary rootedness to survive, but have not given up hope.
