“Here in the Motor City, we take an almost perverse pride in doing things the hard way, or whatever way that means we can be left alone to do our thing however we want.”
Anna Clark, A Detroit Anthology

“Try to imagine what it’s like to wake up one morning, like I did recently, to realize your childhood has been boarded up, abandoned, padlocked. It’s a very disorienting feeling.”
Anna Clark, A Detroit Anthology

“And what can I tell you about Detroit? My city is ripped down the middle. It’s a place that is two parts post-apocalypse and three parts stubborn as hell. A city that keeps running on idealism mixed up with cynicism, covered over by pragmatism and sprinkled with the long-lasting poison of racism. But we still build your cars. We still make your music. We still bottle the best ginger ale in the world and have championship hockey and basketball teams and the only international marathon course in the world and my Tigers.”
Anna Clark, A Detroit Anthology
