An anthology of essays and poetry exploring the Motor City’s hidden corners—from the people who live and work there.

It seems like everybody in Detroit thinks they know the city’s neighborhoods, but because there are so many, their characteristics often become muddled and the stories that define them are often lost. Edited by Aaron Foley—author of How to Live in Detroit Without Being a Jackass—this intimate and wide-ranging collection offers revealing perspectives on a city that many people think they have figured out.

A homegrown portrait about the lesser-known parts of the city, The Detroit Neighborhood Guidebook showcases the voices and people who make up Cass Corridor, West Village, Minock Park, Warrendale, Hamtramck, and almost every other spot in the city. Contributors include Zoe Villegas, Drew Philip, Hakeem Weatherspoon, Marsha Music, Ian Thibodeau, and dozens of others.
