Even though I grew up in Louisiana and lived most of my life there I never really had any love for or desire to visit New Orleans For the first time I've read a book that makes me think I might have been missing out However it should be noted that Andrei Codrescu LA's Transylvanian poet in residence NPR commentator has the luxury of living the Bohemian life at least according to his writing If I had ever moved to New Orleans I have no doubt that I would have spent most of my time bussing tables and cleaning up the vomit and other bodily fluids of aforementioned Bohemians New Orleans Mon Amour is a collection of Codrescu's essays on the city from the twenty years up to and including Katrina The essays do get a little repetitive after a while but they give an interesting perspective from a person who is at least at first an outsider but never a tourist Codrescu celebrates the life food music culture and ghosts of New Orleans without letting you forget about the crime corruption and poverty from which it all sprung

Rsonaje excentrice si relatari ale unor experiente personale Ele surprind „epoca de aur” a boemei orasului dar si caderea brutal provocata de uraganul Katrina„Am luat temperatura Americii si i am masur.

New Orleans Mon Amour Twenty Years of Writings from the CityAt alte semne de viata timp de patruzeci de ani M am imaginat diagnostician dar nu chirurg Din cind in cind diagnozele mi au fost atacate furios de dusmanii imi place sa cred ai bunului simt” Andrei Codres. Andrei lives here not only because he loves it here but because he belongs here He once told me that the great tragedy of his life was that he could not hire a scribe to follow him around and record his life for him so that one part of him always had to remain separate from his actions so that he could record it later Reading this book is a lot like having the privilege of Andrei Codrescu as your personal scribe whilst you shamble through life in the uarter; it's messy dirty literate and slightly drunk with love and other stuff it reminds me why nowhere else will ever be home again
