Billy Sothern's Down in New Orleans illustrates, in very human and heartbreaking ways, how the horrors that emerged during and following Hurricane Katrina existed long before the storm. These beautifully composed stories not only reveal the dignity - and amazing grit and grace - of the hurricane's survivors; they also illuminate larger truths about the urgent issues of our day. Sothern magnifies the urgency of creating a government that really serves the common good - and a society that protects its poor and vulnerable.
--Katrina vanden Heuvel, Editor and Publisher, The Nation

    " This was a great book about the struggles before, during, and after Katrina. The range of stories shows how the storm touched many different people. It is clear that the author loves New Orleans and has hope for its future. "

    " Very good, very depressing. Sothern writes lean prose and doesn't get caught up in self-pity, and the end result is an unexpectedly touching love letter to New Orleans. "

    " Uniquly accurate..while maintaining a witty and ..however there can be, enjoyable way to read Mr. Southern's evacuation from the hurrican, and the experiences he encountered. Not a delightful subject..yet a delightful author and book. Great phoyographs by Nikki Page. "

    " Wow. This guy describes the city post-Katrina in a caring, comprehensive way. His love for the city shows in the thoughtful way he presents the sad events and his ideas about what to do to make New Orleans a dynamic city again. "
