Some people ask, "Who am I?" Mark Giuliano woke up one morning and asked, "Where am I?" Better yet, "Where is home?" In the spirit of Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat Pray Love) and Richard Florida (Who's Your City?), Making It Home is a memoir of both journey and placemaking. With gritty optimism, heart-wrenching honesty, and playful humor, Giuliano shares the story of his audacious endeavor to trade the coastal suburbs of Savannah, Georgia for a home in the hardscaped core of the second poorest city in America - Cleveland, Ohio.

"Home is where the cause is," writes Giuliano. "Our restless passion for a better world urges us toward our true purpose." Weaving together personal anecdotes with iconic Clevelanders such as Congressman Dennis Kucinich to the rustbelt superhero, Guitar Man, Making It Home is the story of the tenacity, entrepreneurial spirit, and redemptive conviction of America's comeback cities. With eloquence and passion, hope and vulnerability, Giuliano shares his unrelenting faith, the limits of love, and those people and places worth living and spiritually dying for.
