Description - The Year Before the Flood by Ned Sublette

Ned Sublette traces an arc of his own experience, from the white supremacy of segregated 1950s Louisiana through the funky year of 2004 2005. By turns irreverent, joyous, darkly comic, passionate, and polemical, he juxtaposes the city s crowded calendar of parties, festivals, and parades with the murderousness of its poverty and its legacy of racism. With a grand cast of musicians and barkeeps, scholars and thugs, vibrating with the sheer excitement of New Orleans, The Year Before the Flood is an affirmation of the power of the city s culture and a heartbreaking tale of loss.
