    Enjoyable Book

    This work is really well written. The prose is crisp and
    clear. (At times I found it hard to understand some of the
    visual descriptions, but that's a minor quibble and may
    have more to do with my deficits than the writing's!)

    It manages to convey the tragedy of Detroit, but somehow
    maintains a sense of hope, a sense that the people of Detroit
    are decent people making the best they can out of a sad
    situation. Even in horrible adversity, people maintain
    a sense of dignity and are driven to artistic expression.
    It's a real monument to human perseverance and dignity. It
    made me feel better about humanity, not worse.
