JUST ARRIVED: DETOUR IN DETROIT by Francesca Berardi, illustrations by Antonio Rovaldi.
From the inside cover: "Between February 2013 and November 2014 I visited Detroit six times, for a total of seventy-seven days...I found in Detroit what I had been looking for when I left Italy and crossed the Atlantic Ocean. Space, both physical and for the imagination...An emotional and practical book about the city, mapped through a series of encounters with its people...I realized that fear and fascination for decay quickly take second place. It has been like a way of seeing that is more like a way of listening...full of an energy that only appears when determination and potential meet."
