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?
