James Lee Burke The New Iberia Blues For Julian Higgins, a poet with a movie camera Chapter One Desmond Cormiers success story was an improbable one, even among the many self-congratulatory rags-to-riches tales we tell ourselves in the ongoing saga of our green republic, one that is forever changing yet forever the same, a saga that also includes the graves of Shiloh and cinders from aboriginal villages.

The Best American Mystery Stories 2006 Foreword Now that Best American Mystery Stories has reached its first decade, I thought Id go back and reread the forewords Id written for the first nine to see if I had anything original to say which would be a major coup for me at any time. Well, I dont. What I do realize is how much has changed in ten years and how much has not. Among the changes are that I stupidly crowed about not having a computer for the first few volumes. I do now and couldnt live ...

New Orleans Noir: The Classics Introduction The Many Ways It Can All Go Away Just after Hurricane Katrina, when New Orleans was at its most noir moment and so were we all, I was invited by Akashic Books to put together a volume of original stories for the first New Orleans Noir. It perfectly suited all our moods down here, which might account for the extremely high quality of the stories the authors produced. The collection has remained so popular that, almost ten years later, were coming back ...

James Lee Burke Two For Texas Chapter one The first day that Son Holland arrived in the penal camp, manacled inside a mule-drawn wagon with seven other convicts, he knew that he would eventually escape, that he would die before he would spend ten years in a steaming swamp under the guns and horse quirts of malarial Frenchmen with Negro blood in their veins and a degenerate corruption in their hearts. But he was just barely nineteen then, still sufficiently naive to believe that his will alone ...

In the evenings I sat on the back steps of a rented shotgun house on ...

On an island off the Louisiana coast there is an open-air pavilion among a group of cypress trees, and in those first wisteria-scented days of May one can sit in a wicker chair, drinking ...

The ventilated storm shutters were slatted with a pink glow, as soft and filtered and cool in color as the spring sunrise can be in the Garden District, the courtyard outside touched with mist off the river, the pastel walls deep in shadow and stained with ...
