Born in Detroit, David Maraniss is an associate editor at The Washington Post, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and bestselling author of "Barack Obama: The Story" and "When Pride Still Mattered: A Life of Vince Lombardi," which was hailed by Sports Illustrated as “maybe the best sports biography ever published.” In "Once in a Great City: A Detroit Story," David captures this great American city at its pinnacle. Detroit in 1963 reflected the spirit of the entire country at the time, and its complicated past and future decline could be traced to this era.
