In DOWNTOWN, Lee Meitzen Grue's poems are equal to the upwelling of jazz itself: from Treme street corners, to the wayward French Quarter, to the carefree vibes of Bywater, all the way to back o’ town; this astonishing collection speaks from a mythic pantheon of yowls & beats as timeless as the Crescent City herself.
Niyi Osundare, African poet and resident of New Orleans, was one of the many whose lives were caught in the hurricane Katrina. Rescued by a neighbor with a boat, losing all that he had, exiled without even an identification to several states, he returned to rebuild his life and house. Written over the last five years, City Without People recounts his loss and is thank you to all those who helped.
