Nine Lives by Dan Baum paints a picture of the lives of nine New Oreleans residents bracketed by two violent storms, Hurricane Betsy and Hurricane Katrina. New Orleans is not the best place to be in the most timid of Hurricanes, it is usually best to be above sea level when the wind starts to roar. Hurricane Katrina upped the ante to cataclysmic levels. This is an interesting, informed look at the romance, allure, and catastrophe of New Orleans. (booksense)… (mais)
You are invited to join us for the book release celebration of New Yorker writer Dan Baum's NINE LIVES: Death & Life in New Orleans. In addition to a reading and book signing, there will be live music performed by the Gypsy Jazz Allstars (formerly Vavavoom).
NINE LIVES is a defining take on the story of New Orleans in the tradition of major novelisitic nonfiction works like Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, Isaac’s Storm, The Executioner’s Song, and A Bright, Shining Lie. A magesterial and elegiac nonfiction narrative from a New Yorker writer about nine lives in New Orleans over forty years, bookended by two epic hurricanes. A stunning work of journalism, this is the deeply felt story of a lost American outpost and the idiosyncratic, heroic, beautiful, and tragic people who call it home. (booksense)… (mais)
