New Orleans Stories: Great Writers on the City

New Orleans Stories: Great Writers on the City Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.
