A Conversation with Carlo Rotella, Author of "The World is Always Coming to an End: Pulling Together and Apart in a Chicago Neighborhood"
Carlo Rotella, writer, journalist, and scholar, grew up in two houses at opposite ends of Chicago's South Shore neighborhood in the 1970s. He returned to South Shore to find that the hollowing out of the middle class has left haves and have-nots separated by an expanding gap that makes it harder for them to recognize each other as neighbors.
Blending journalism, archival research, and memoir, "The World Is Always Coming to an End" uses the story of one American neighborhood to challenge our assumptions about what neighborhoods are, and to think anew about how neighbors can come together across widening divides to form a vibrant community.
