"Things People Say About Detroit : A Collection of Quotes As Told To The Nain Rouge" by Dave Krieger
Detroit's fabled gnome, the Nain Rouge, shares his favorite quotes about Detroit as told to him by celebrities and noted historical figures
For over 300 years the Nain Rouge has lived in Detroit. Considered by many to be a malevolent folk character, for years tales have been spun by those who sought to damage his good nature. Having been blamed for anything detrimental that happened to Detroit throughout its history, by those whose motives are nefarious at best, the Nain Rouge has only started to reclaim his stature as a protagonist for Detroit. Over the centuries, he has collected quotes from some of Detroit's finest and some not so fine.
This collection of quotes tells the story of Detroit through the voices of its own, reliving earlier times and commenting on the Detroit of today. Through the awareness of these opinions, and remarks, the story of Detroit, its history, its ingenuity, and its contributions to the world are better understood and appreciated.
To understand more about Detroit and the Nain Rouge, be sure to pick up the Nain Rouge's first book, Things I do in Detroit, a Guide to Detroit's Coolest Place.
