Detroit: An American Autopsy by Charlie LeDuff (19/52)

Charting the rise and dramatic fall of the Motor City, LeDuff captures the real stories of the gut-punch that was the recession of 2008. Not only does LeDuff tell stories that infuriate, he offers enough hope for the people within the city limits. His writing is powerful, harsh and yet beautiful. He humanizes the desperation we hear about. I really enjoyed this book, though no references to the Red Wings.
