Detroit: An American Autopsy

Personal. Journalist Charlie LeDuff has written a great book about his hometown and its woes titled, Detroit: An American Autopsy. The misery and sadness of the people still living in the city of Detroit provide a backdrop for this cautionary tale. Our city may be next. LeDuff candidly lays out the experience of his own family alongside a large cast of characters. The blending of the personal with the distance of a reporter make for a fine combination in a book that riveted my attention from beginning to end. Readers who care about any city and about quality of life in America will find this book heartbreaking and engaging.
