My Detroit: Growing Up Greek and American in Motor City
My favor book is My Detroit: Growing Up Greek and American in Motor City , a loving but critical memoir of Detroit in the 1950-60s when it had the highest standard of any American metropolis. My Detroit proceeds from the industrial east side to explore Detroit's complex racial, artistic, economic, and political life. It s a subjective companion to my Detroit: I Do Mind Dying, a historical account of the city's turbulent 1960s.
