Editorial Reviews


Trigger Man is riveting, revealing—full of gritty detail, atmosphere, beauty, and meaning. I savored this collection the first time through. . . . The second time, I read for the fun, shock, and memorable (life-changing!) epiphanies of the stories. The Motor City has found in Daniels a true bard. He has put to words a kind of secret history for the ages.

—Laura Kasischke, author of In a Perfect World and The Raising

Jim Ray Daniels’ characters in Trigger Man inhabit an emotional demolition derby, where even the “winners” do as much damage to themselves as they do to others. Stories as close to desperation as the city they’re set in.

—John Sayles

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Jim Daniels is a modern-day King Midas -- everything he touches is gold. Poetry or fiction in this case, he is equally at home and the reader is equally entertained and touched.
