Amy HaimerlDetroit Hustle: A Memoir of Life, Love, and Home

Journalist Amy Haimerl and her husband were priced out of their Brooklyn neighborhood. Seeing this as a great opportunity to start over again, they decided to cash in their savings and buy an abandoned house for $35,000 in Detroit, the largest city in the United States to declare bankruptcy. Haimerl discusses Detroit Hustle: A Memoir of Love, Life & Home, a book that is both a meditation on what it takes to make a house a home, and a love letter to a much-derided city.
