More Tales of the Motor CityBook - 2011
"Trigger Man "is a superb collection of stories capturing the gritty spirit of Detroit and the sometimes grim circumstances of the characters shaped by its industry and economics. Grounded on the bleak streets of the Motor City, these stories also explore the mythical Up North, the idealized country of many Detroit workers fantasyan escape from the concrete and metal reality of their daily lives. Daniels characters are resilient and defiant, inhabiting a world that has often placed them on the margins of society, scouring a declining region for spiritual providence. Building on Daniels earlier collections of stories, "Trigger Man "brings vivid life to individuals struggling both to remain in and to flee the city that once sustained them."
