Detroit’s history and the legend of the Nain Rouge are entwined. And if you are a fan of the Nain Rouge then I have just the thing for you.

Author Dave Krieger has come out with a second book from the perspective of Detroit’s red devil, the Nain Rouge.

Things People Say About Detroit, A Collection of Quotes As Told To the Nain Rouge was released earlier this month.

The book is a pocket-sized so it would be great for a stocking stuffer.

This book is a who’s who of Detroit. Considering the Nain Rouge has been kicking around these parts since the Cadillac you know he’s seen some stuff.

There are quotes from some of our most loved Detroiters like Stevie Wonder, Emily Gail, Gilda Radner, and Della Reese.

Not to mention some of our most infamous people like Kwame Kilpatrick.

The book is $17.95 and it can be purchased at City Bird, Pure Detroit, Detroit Mercantile, Detroit Historical Museum Shop, Detroit Opera House, MOCAD, Detroit Artist Market and the Detroit Shop at Somerset. You can also purchase the book online.

There will be an official book release party on Saturday, December 9 from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. at Third Man Records. We will be sure to remind you all about it in our City 5.

P.S. If you’re looking for a coffee table book then I suggest checking out Krieger’s first book Things I Do In Detroit: A Guide Book To The Coolest Places By The Nain Rouge. It is pretty spectacular.
