Given the book's title, it's dismaying to discover the actual focus of this book is not the wonderful MUSIC that has come out of Michigan! However, if you enjoy lots of sordid tales about lots of scummy characters, you'll read it in one sitting!

I found the first half of the book a lot more interesting than the second half.
