Cold eye, hard truths …

 Book Review: Detroit - (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

 any book about Detroit is a book about decomposition and the culture's cluelessness about what to do with the remains. The bodies and rubble have become world famous. "Ruin porn"—photographs of the city's crumbling buildings and factories—has become a marketable art form. The author has a nose for putrefactions beyond the infrastructure and architecture. The ruin extends to a way of life.
