Motor City was once the model of American capitalism. What happened after the bottom fell out? The 2010 census revealed that Detroit has lost twenty-five percent of its population in just ten years and in most media, the narrative has been reduced to a steady drumbeat of crime, poverty, and ruin. Rolling Stone and Atlantic reporter Mark Binelli sees it differently. Subtly blending memoir, analysis, and reportage, his Detroit City Is the Place to Be portrays a once-thriving metropolis that is fast becoming a test kitchen for new ideas in urban planning, environmentalism, and up-against-the-wall experimentation. The only book on Detroit that will keep you up late reading. Editor's recommendation.
