The Times-Picayune calls Amanda Boyden’s Babylon Rolling a “brilliant, nuanced portrait of pre-Katrina New Orleans,” saying, “Once in a great while, a novel comes along that makes you sit up and look around at your world and see it anew, in all its richness and complexity.”
Just read this excerpt and you’ll be in complete agreement.
Or, better yet, if you are in or around New Orleans, hear Amanda Boyden read from the book herself. She will be appearing at the Garden District Bookshop on Wednesday, September 9. For more information, click here.
