Praise for Detroit Tales“Jim Ray Daniels looks at the same gritty world as the rest of us, but sees something altogether different—the treachery of domesticity for one thing. He knows, as Tolstoy knew, that the ordinary life is the most terrible, the most heartbreaking, and the most compelling. The stories in Detroit Tales are both disturbing and subversive, asking us to question everything we believe in and count on. The language is bold and poetic, the vision clear and unflinching. When I finished the book, I was rattled to realize that there is nothing so frightening, so unsettling, as a life sharply observed.”
—John Dufresne, author of Deep in the Shade of Paradise
“Jim Daniels writes with grace and unsentimental sympathy about ordinary, hard- edged lives, their celebrations and failures and strivings. There is a world of dreams beneath the skin of even the toughest city. Detroit Tales maps it beautifully.”
—Jean Thompson, author of Wide Blue Yonder
