Toby Barlow, author of the novel Sharp Teeth, talks to Model D about his new hometown, Detroit.

To that end, Barlow’s got something up his sleeve just to prove how much. "I've got a big screenplay for Detroit," he says. "It's about rebuilding community and taking responsibility." He goes on to explain that it’s also a script about a little kid that turns into Bruce Lee when he hears a Hammond organ; and the story revolves around how the kid moves the organ around town. Which is good thing to hinge a plot on given that Barlow is no stranger to turning “cityscapes” into storytelling. Case in point, his first novel, Sharp Teeth. Besides love and lycanthropes, it also has a lot to do with Los Angeles.
