Description

From thriving Motor City to the largest municipal bankruptcy in American history, Detroit has become the nation's cautionary tale. But what led to the fateful day of the filing, and how did the city survive this crisis? Journalist Nathan Bomey delivers the inside story of Detroit's decline and the people who fought to save it against impossible odds: governor Rick Snyder, a self-proclaimed nerd; emergency manager Kevyn Orr, a lawyer with singular dedication; judge Steven Rhodes, the city's conscience; and retirees who fought to ensure that Detroit kept its promises. In a tightly reported narrative, Bomey reveals the tricky path to the Grand Bargain that would determine the fate of pensioners, city services, and the world-class Detroit Institute of Arts, which faced the threat of liquidation. Detroit Resurrected offers a sweeping account of financial ruin, backroom intrigue, and political rebirth in the struggle to reinvent one of America's great cities.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Jonathan Yen's deep, authoritative voice matches the factual tone of this audiobook, but he also varies his pitch to make it an interesting listen. He moves through the material deliberately, so we can digest the myriad acts, actions, bills, and legal contretemps that accompanied the city's long, but ultimately quick, slide into fiscal decline. There's nothing very notable about Yen's delivery, but he does what the author requires of him--he respectfully tells an interesting story about a town that fell on hard times while emphasizing the key facts and ideas that led to its current attempt at a renaissance.
