Say Nice Things about Detroit

By Scott Lasser
Narrated by Kevin Kenerly / 6 hours 13 minutes

A novel about second chances from a writer of “stirring, poignant, and quietly profound” work (Wally Lamb)

Twenty-five years after his high school graduation, David Halpert returns to a place that most people flee. But David is making his own escape—from his divorce and the death of his son. In Detroit David learns about the double shooting of his high school girlfriend, Natalie, and her black half-brother, Dirk. As David becomes involved with Natalie’s sister, he will discover that both he and his hometown have reason to hope.

As compelling an urban portrait as The Wire and a touching love story, Say Nice Things about Detroit takes place in a racially polarized, economically collapsing city that doesn’t seem like a place for rebirth. But as David tries to make sense of the mystery behind Natalie’s death and puts back the pieces of his own life, he is forced to answer a simple question: If you want to go home again, what do you do if home is Detroit?
