Quotes & Awards

  • Baum, an empathetic storyteller, has nearly perfectly distilled the events, providing readers with a sensuous portrait of a place . . . Baum's chronicle leaves readers with a bittersweet understanding of what Americans lost during Hurricane Katrina. Publishers Weekly Starred Review
  • “If James Frey and Anthony Bourdain had a love child, Brandon Baltzley would be their delightful and devilish spawn.”

    Chicago Sun-Times

  • Nine Lives is a cool mix of food and drugs. Baltzley’s story is captivating. His voice is raw and honest. Makes you hungry, and repulsed all at the same time—but in the best way possible. The frenetic energy in his life is captured by the bullet-train fast narrative. A great work of art.”

    Nic Sheff, author of Tweak

  • Nine Lives is a compelling story of perseverance and the power of food. I’m honored to have been a part of Brandon’s journey.”

    Chef Wylie Dufresne
