I have a feature in the Books section of Time Out New York this week. The subject is the surge of post Katrina books about New Orleans. The title, courtesy of Time Out, is "Water Works: Odes to New Orleans are flooding the bookshelves." My editor sent an apology email before it even hit the stands. But then I shared with him some of the Gambit's recent cover story titles: "Writers on the Storm" and "A Flood of Words."
When you live down here, you get used to it after a while.
