Acclaimed authors of the international bestseller “Half the Sky,” Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn are the first husband-wife team to share a Pulitzer Prize for Journalism. In their latest masterpiece of investigative reporting, Kristof and WuDunn issue a plea to address the crisis in working-class America, while focusing on solutions to mend a half century of governmental failure. Deeply personal and told through the life stories of real Americans, “Tightrope” is a riveting picture of the daily struggles of working-class families.
