The Detroit Neighborhood Guidebook is ready for pre-order!

If you loved A Detroit Anthology and How to Live in Detroit Without Being a Jackass, then you’re going to love Belt’s latest book about the Motor City.

Edited by Detroit native Aaron Foley, The Detroit Neighborhood Guidebook features essays, fiction, and poetry by Zoe Villegas, Drew Philip, Hakeem Weatherspoon, Marsha Music, Ian Thibodeau, and dozens others–including Foley himself.

“We’re still living in a Detroit where everyone thinks they know more about our city than we do,” Foley says. “With this guidebook, let’s hope we prove them wrong. It’s impossible to encapsulate every neighborhood in the city; it’s obvious we’re far more than east, west and southwest. But what we have here is what encapsulates the city: Hopes and heartbreak, memories and mystery, past and present. To boot, the majority of the content is outside the scope of downtown and Midtown. Again, no one says downtown and Midtown don’t count, but the goal has always been to make sure that everywhere else does. Welcome to The Detroit Neighborhoods Guidebook.”
