Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of Detroit: An American Autopsy
A fearless, clear eyed companion into parts of America that rarely see print. Entertainment Weekly
Charlie LeDuff has made a career out of his extraordinary ability to capture the spirit of the people and places he profiles. US Guys is his odyssey in search of the truth behind the American man, from a jaded homicide detective in Detroit to a two-bit jockey at a racetrack in Miami to a pair of lovers at a gay rodeo. With audacity, humor, and no small amount of physical pain, he captures a broad diversity of voices as they wrestle with an America they love but increasingly fail to understand."

Review quote

Mr. LeDuff has a distinct style for committing what the sociologist C. Wright Mills said was James Agees forte: sociological poetry. . . . [He] has some Damon Runyon in him, some Raymond Chandler, and more good one-liners than a weeks worth of machine-tooled sitcoms.
