Greektown 1983 in A Detroit Anthology

My contribution to “A Detroit Anthology” is the short essay “Greektown 1983.”


First paragraphs:

Stella waited for me in Greektown. She scurried down Monroe Street in her army coat covered in patches, a dozen bright-colored barrettes in her matted grey hair, crooked face leading the way. She carried dozens of shopping bags filled with what any schizophrenic needs for life on the streets. I couldn’t imagine what they were. Cans of sardines? A thousand more hair barrettes still in their packages? Plastic bags filled with more plastic bags? 

Buy this. For real. It’s all badass.
