Detroit: An American Autopsy

by Charlie LeDuff

Highbridge Company | May 21, 2013 | Audio Book (CD)

4 out of 5 rating. 2 Reviews

In the heart of America, a metropolis is quietly destroying itself. Detroit, once the richest city in the nation, is now its poorest. Once the vanguard of America''s machine age?mass production, automobiles, and blue-collar jobs?Detroit is now America''s capital for unemployment, illiteracy, foreclosure, and dropouts.

With the steel-eyed reportage that has become his trademark and the righteous indignation that only a native son can possess, journalist Charlie LeDuff sets out to uncover what has brought low this once-vibrant city, his city. In doing so, he uncovers the deeply human drama of a city filled with some of the strongest?and strangest?people our country has to offer.
