About Annabel’s Odyssey

This blog originated just after the crash of 2008. It became clear that there were a great many people that had fallen out of the middle class and become the “new poor”. I wanted to write about it, and to that end I traveled about 15,000 miles, crisscrossing the United States, mostly by train and bus.

What I learned was stunning. I wanted to write a book of interviews, but most if not all the people I met were too embarrassed to go on the record. So I just started writing.

In the years that followed it became clearer that the crash was not a bug of capitalism, but rather a feature. Exploring this and other social developments became the focus of this writing.

The Trump takeover in 2016 has brought the decay of the entire enterprise into sharp focus. It is my intention to continue to chronicle and analyze this developing story about how we live in the 21st century.
