Middlesex

I always enjoy bringing people that are unfamiliar with Detroit down to my place in the city to show them some of what Detroit is really like.

I was really excited tonight, because the members of my book club decided to come down to my place for our meeting this evening. Even better was that our last book, Middlesex, which is partly-set in Detroit and has many Detroit references in it, opened up a broad discussion about the city, including what we were brought up thinking it was like, how it has changed, and how some of the things we were told growing up may not have been true.

If you enjoy history, geography, or like reading about the old days in Detroit, I highly recommend this book.

Personally, I loved it – I read it in less than a week. Most of my book club friends thought it was difficult to get into and was too long, but I think the author did a magnificent job with the narration of the story.
