About the Original Book:

South Bend, Indiana, once counted among the top ten dying cities of USA, has played witness to a miraculous revival since 2011. Shortest Way Home, written by the mayor leading this incredible urban renewal, chronicles the many challenges, both public and personal, faced by him in the process. These interwoven stories of a conservative Midwest community’s acceptance of a young, gay, Democratic mayor and a written-off city’s transformation into a hub of investment and innovation work as a salve in our times of cynicism and hopelessness.
