French Quarter Fiction

The Newest Stories of America's Oldest Bohemia ; An Anthology of the Best Works by Living Writers on the Heart of New Orleans
(Book - 2003 )
French Quarter Fiction

Item Details

As One of the World's most legendary and unique places, for three centuries the French Quarter of New Orleans has been home and muse to countless artists. Anchored in this setting, 37 short stories are collected here for the first time. These works branch across every genre from mystery and romance to surrealism and prose poetry, as incomparable as the neighborhood from which they sprang, forming an eclectic mix of some of the most exciting modern fiction found anywhere. These characters also find themselves everywhere from Sarajevo on the eve of World War I to Algiers Point just across the Mississippi River, and their stories wander from the 18th Century New World to a rooftop view of Bourbon Street as the third millennium begins. Nothing else could hope to lift this neighborhood's veils of privacy so utterly. But most importantly, these are stories for anyone who loves great fiction, regardless if they have even heard of the French Quarter. Whether it's flash fiction, horror, or satire, when it comes down to it, these are simply great stories: breathtaking, beautiful, poignant, tragic and comic. Book jacket.
