Nine Lives: Mystery, Magic, Death, and Life in New Orleans by Dan Baum
Nine Lives: Mystery, Magic, Death, and Life in New Orleans

Patricia Richardson, January 3, 2013

My favorite book of the year was a difficult choice, but I picked Nine Lives. So much to this book! - history, suspense, personalities across the entire spectrum making up New Orleans society. I found myself repeatedly doing internet research to find out more details of events or people, and everything I learned matched up what Dan Baum presented accurately. This is a book I would read again and I look forward to a return trip to New Orleans to visit locales featured in the book. This is a must read for anyone touched by Katrina and its aftermath, or just by the color and legacy of New Orleans itself.
