The Cherry & the Pit

A continuing series that highlights books recently acquired by publishing houses for future release. Each post features a book we’re looking forward to, and a book we’re . . . not.

The Cherry:

Mark Binelli’s The Last Days of Detroit, a journalistic, historic, personal and colorful account of the once great city’s colossal collapse and what it says about our priorities, and perhaps our cities’ future.

The Pit:

Lessons from Stanley the Cat, a quirky, illustrated guide to life filled with wise and witty observations from Stanley, a remarkably astute cat, translated by his doting psychotherapist (human) parent, Jennifer Freed.
