Inhaltsangabe: Book by Walker Rob
"Rob Walker...has managed to make New Orleans-a city that has been documented and written about for centuries-seem completely fresh and unfamiliar and wholly compelling."
Rob Walker is a wonderful writer with a gentle yet comprehensive inquisitiveness, the rigorous, observant eye of a journalist, and the light, poetic touch of an artist. He has managed to make New Orleans-a city that has been documented and written about for centuries-seem completely fresh and unfamilar and wholly compelling. Letters from New Orleans is a lovely book, and so much more.--David Rakoff, author of Fraud, Author of Fraud
This book is far more than a poetic testament to a strange and wonderful town. It's a story about a city boy who recognizes the need to slow down and observe carefully - a story of a couple who learns to let our world's odd richness really sink in. I recommend it to anyone who feels life is going by too fast.--Po Bronson, author of What Should I Do With My Life?
...a captivating tale.--June Sawyers, The Chicago Tribune
It recalls writers such as V.S. Naipaul, who approach cities and countries with a hungry interest in demolishing false expectations...--Flak Magazine
Its insider-outsider perspective and street-level historical explorations make it essential for anyone interested in New Orleans.--Maximum Rock'n'Roll
We strongly recommend this enlightening, eccentric, and most importantly highly entertaining book.--FreeWilliamsburg.com
...Streetwise, conversational in tone, unimpressed by cant, and willing to grapple with the city's weird, compelling racial heritage.--Quiet Bubble
I've read very few essays, articles, books...that really captures a city, a town, or a "place" so vividly...--Time Enough at Last
A series of e-mails that turned into a book with soul.--AnimaMundi
This three-year meditation on life and death in New Orleans is as wistful as absinthe, as funky as a muffuletta at a joint off Tchoupitoulas.--Jed Horne, author of Desire Street: A True Story of Death and Deliverance in New Orleans"
