The literary tradition of New Orleans spans centuries and
touches every genre; its living heritage winds through storied
neighborhoods and is celebrated at numerous festivals across the
city. For booklovers, a visit to the Big Easy isn't complete
without whiling away the hours in an antiquarian bookstore in the
French Quarter or stepping out on a literary walking tour. Perhaps
only among the oak-lined avenues, Creole town houses, and famed
hotels of New Orleans can the lust of A Streetcar Named Desire, the
zaniness of A Confederacy of Dunces, the chill of Interview with
the Vampire, and the heartbreak of Walker Percy's Moviegoer begin
Susan Larson's revised and updated edition of The Booklover's
Guide to New Orleans not only explores the legacy of Tennessee
Williams and William Faulkner, but also visits the haunts of
celebrated writers of today, including Anne Rice and James Lee
Burke. This definitive guide provides a key to the books, authors,
festivals, stores, and famed addresses that make the Crescent City
a literary destination.
