Devil's Night: And Other True Tales of Detroit

Ze'ev Chafets, Author, Zev Chafets, Author, Marty Asher, Editor Vintage Books USA $10 (0p) ISBN 978-0-679-73591-5
Chafets interviews Detroiters about the Motor City's decline and shows how ``Devil's Night,'' the night before Halloween, evolved from an evening of pranks into one of rampant arson. ``An enormously unsettling read and a tragically accurate picture of a dying metropolis,'' said PW but criticized ``the author's penchant for sweeping generalizations and his tendency to shy away from tougher issues.''
