“Sh*tshow! The Country’s Collapsing and the Ratings Are Great”
A daring, firsthand, and an utterly-unscripted account of the crisis in America, from Ferguson to Flint to Cliven Bundy’s ranch to Donald Trump’s unstoppable campaign for President–at every turn, Pulitzer-prize winner and bestselling author of Detroit: An American Autopsy, Charlie LeDuff was there.
Charlie LeDuff is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, formerly at the New York Times, the Detroit News, and Detroit’s Fox 2 News. He was one of several reporters who worked on The New York Times series “How Race Is Lived in America,” which was awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 2001. LeDuff has covered the war in Iraq, crossed the border with Mexican migrants, and chronicled a Brooklyn firehouse in the aftermath of 9/11. The author of Detroit, US Guys, and Work and Other Sins, he lives near Detroit.
