Overview

New Orleans is the Lost City of America.

New Orleans has disappeared as surely as the lost city of Atlantis or the lost city of Pompeii, which former mayor Marc Morial and Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA.) have compared us to in their statements.

That New Orleans, the New Orleans I mean to tell you about, that will never, ever, exist again--that city of love, lust, death and sex--will never exist again.

A portion of the proceeds of this book will go to the New Orleans Hospitality Workers Fund. The cooks, servers and restaurant workers of New Orleans have provided fabulous times and memories for millions. Now we must remember them in their time of need.

I bought this book, as well as many others about Katrina, to try to get as full a picture as possible about things as they were, are, and will be in New Orleans in the aftermath. Most of this book is not about the circumstances surrounding Hurricane Katrina, but about the author's time spent in the bars around New Orleans with his crackhead [his term] friends in years prior to the hurricane. The writing is generally incoherent, with so many flashbacks and flashforwards that it is rendered impossible to read. Had I been given the option of zero stars I would have taken it. Shame on you, Mr. Amis, for using your brief stopover (nothing more than a 4 year vacation) to capatilize and make money off of this tragedy. By his own admission, he was no longer even living in the Big Easy at the time of the storm. If you're looking for the real story of New Orleans and Katrina, read the books below- they were written by real authors who truly know and understand our beloved city.
