New Orleans by New Orleans is a collection of short fiction, poetry and non-fiction, all inspired by New Orleans. It is a poignant portrait of a beautiful city, presented through the eyes of its own community.
The collection features over fifty works by well-known authors whom New Orleans is fortunate to claim, and up-and-coming writers whose works demand attention.
The book is a powerful read, containing vivid anecdotes of growing up in New Orleans, and of beloved people and places no longer here; of family lineages, and harrowing hurricane experiences; fictional tales, including a foul-mouthed talking cockroach and a children’s fable about the origin of Mardi Gras; essays about everyday life in the city, about daily routine amidst surreal beauty—and a whole lot more.
