Voodoo. Vampires. Jazz. There's no city quite like New Orleans, a city that whispers stories and where writers come to eavesdrop. New Orleans Stories collects the very best writing on the Big Easy by a stellar gallery of writers for whom the city has played host and muse -- from Walt Whitman and William Faulkner to Anne Rice, Truman Capote, Walker Percy, Tennessee Williams, and Zora Neale Hurston. With a striking new cover, this anthology captures the vibrancy -- and variety -- of New Orleans as it casts its most seductive spell.
An anthology of writings inspired by America's most exotic city. Among the authors represented are Walker Percy, William Faulkner, Tennessee Williams, Zora Neale Hurston, Truman Capote, and Louis Armstrong. Introduction by Andrei Codrescu. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
