What happens when Americans lose their jobs? In Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Farah Stockman’s new book American Made: What Happens to People When Work Disappears, Stockman explores the profound role work plays in our sense of identity and belonging as she follows three workers whose lives unravel when the factory they have dedicated so much to closes down. American Made tells a story of a community struggling to reinvent itself in the context of work, race, class, and American values, and it shines a light on this political moment when joblessness and the future of work are uncertain.
Farah Stockman joined The New York Times editorial board in 2020 after covering politics, social movements, and race for the national desk. She previously spent sixteen years at the Boston Globe, nearly half of that time as the paper’s foreign policy reporter in Washington, D.C. She has reported from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, South Sudan, Rwanda, and Guantánamo Bay. She also served as a columnist and an editorial board member at the Globe. In 2016, she won the Pulitzer Prize for a series of columns about the efforts to desegregate Boston’s schools.
