Maximum Sunlight is a timely and incisive portrait of the people, communities, anxieties, and contradictions that make up what many think of—now, more than ever, after the 2016 election—as rural white America.
Told through a series of candid interviews and sharp observations of town life in tiny Tonopah, Nevada, journalist Meagan Day (Jacobin Magazine) and photographer Hannah Klein create a book that is both traditional reportage and searching portrait of this eccentric and yet archetypal desert town.
Included in Best American Nonrequired Reading 2017.
