PUNCHING OUT: One Year in a Closing Auto Plant by Paul Clemens

January 10th, 2011

Paul Clemens, the author of MADE IN DETROIT, a 2005 New York Times Book Review Notable Book, brings us PUNCHING OUT — an angry, funny, and powerfully evocative elegy about the slow death of a Detroit auto plant and an American way of life.

Praise for PUNCHING OUT:
“On the ground, compelling stories about the decline of an American city and industry due to corporate greed… Throughout the narrative, the author proves to be a keen, tireless observer, and he provides vivid portrayals of the many recurring characters from the dismantling crew.” —Kirkus Reviews

“There’s black humor in Paul Clemens PUNCHING OUT, his year-long, boots-on-the-ground account of the slow death of a once proud Detroit auto plant, and a requiem for the working class.” —Vanity Fair
