A Tale of New Orleans: Babylon Rolling by Amanda Boyden

September 1st, 2009

The Times-Picayune of New Orleans said it best: “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.”

Amanda Boyden’s new novel, Babylon Rolling, does that and so much more. The Times-Picayune went on to call Babylon Rolling a “brilliant, nuanced portrait of pre-Katrina New Orleans,” but the story transcends even that time and place. The characters that inhabit this small New Orleans street become the prism through which Boyden examines complex issues of race and class…and an unflinching look at human nature at its best and worst.
