What's New & Interesting This Week

This week of April 14 through April 19 brought some really great things into Blue Cypress Books.

"The Brief Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao", by Junot Diaz arrived this week, just after its Pulitizer Prize win in Fiction. An outside shelf has been organized with all my in-stock Pulitizer Prize winning fiction and non-fiction.

On a local New Orleans note, "Voices from the Storm, The People of New Orleans on Hurricane Katrina and its Aftermath" arrived new from McSweeney's. This series is the 2nd book in the Voice of Witness Series, which collected oral histories on the human-rights crisis in the United States and around the world.

Also, especially relevant, is the arrival of "The Incomplete, Year-By-Year, Selectively Quirky, Prime Facts Edition of the History of The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival." Jazz Fest is just around the corner. Confession: I will be cutting work and closing down on the first Friday, April 25th to enjoy a full Fest day!

Going great with the above, was the arrival of 4 brand new "Rand McNally - New Orleans Street Guide." This is completely updated post-K.
