it was amazing

This is a courageous book that reminds me of my own ambivalence, malevolence and pride in growing up and remaining in Detroit long after the majority of our neighbors had fled. Paul's story could easily be changed to resemble my story-- were it to just switch to the west side, move from Gratiot to Woodward, change religions, and Italian heritage to the children of Eastern European immigrants,our stories would meld into one.

I have always been saddened that the city we championed for so long lost all its soul. I see the new urban pioneers and cheer them on--but sadly know that they too will have to move when they settle down to raise a family.
