Villard Square Reads

With his characteristic humor and in-your-face storytelling, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Charlie LeDuff paints a bleak picture of his hometown in Detroit: An American Autopsy, this portrait of a crumbling Detroit. From corruption at every level of city politics to fire stations without functioning fire alarms, it's hard to believe the anecdotes related are happening in the United States. A disturbing, fascinating, and ultimately tentatively hopeful read.
