Very much worth revisiting if you ve read it before very much worth discovering if you haven t A tense and meticulously told true crime story with real journalistic care about a profile act of racial violence with than a little police complicity in Detroit in and around the 1967 riots Hersey was an interesting and versatile writer His portfolio is diverse both lyrical and pragmatic but in this work he opened important doors for the hard edged reporting style of prose into the new complex sociological terrain of the Civil Rightsthere s a riot goin on era This book can be enjoyed as a stand alone novelor as part of the muckraking social advocacy stream in American literature which dates back in it strength to the 1870sI think Hersey is a writer famous in his day who deserves reappraisal He did a lot of different things well Not easily categorized in the totality of his work which may be why he s not appreciated as much as he should be

The movie Detroit brought me to this book On the one hand as a detailed document of a specific time and place and for the raw expression of pain and anger particularly of Auburey Pollard s mother this book is invaluable On the other hand it s just a jumbled repetitive messSurprisingly the best extended moments come from the interviews and history of the policemen accused of these horrible racist crimes We have an engaging account of the officers lives then a description of the incident where they were involved but nothing linking them Did the author even ask any of them about their actions during this incident Were they asked but refused to comment There s an incredible disconnect hereThe cops stories are presented simply and directly but the victims stories are given a lofty prose full of ridiculous sentences My favorite is probably Friendship was the highest prize of life to Lee and Carl above all others was the giver of the prize These people don t need a false illumination of dignity although maybe John Hersey thought they might ve needed it at the time it was writtenI m really torn about this book it s certainly compulsively readable and important but it s kind of irritating too
