Reading "The Coffee Shop Chronicles of New Orleans" by David Lummis

Posted: Jul 02, 2010

Perhaps because I was an English professor for most of my life, friends are always asking me what good book I have read recently. Well, I am happy to report that I have just completed a wonderful first novel by David Lummis entitled  The Coffee Shop Chronicles of New Orleans.

Some of you may have read the journals I posted regarding my recent trip to New Orleans this April, at which time I met David Lummis and his life partner Csaba Lukacs. Thus, it is a privilege and a pleasure for me to publish the first review of The Coffee Shop Chronicles of New Orleans: Part 1 right here on Swampland, as well as a feature article on David himself: "Meet David Lummis."

I hope you will read the review, but most of all, I hope you will buy the book. You will not be disappointed.  Happy reading!

----Penne J. Laubenthal

Neiman Marcus will continue to party like it is their birthday, because it is The Chanel Designer Handbags is a sure fire way to lure in buyers and let them know that Neiman Marcus is there to make their lives better. A fan of the faux-horn top handle from the beginning, the designer handbags adds another dimension to make the masses drool. The body of this version is designed with supple gray ostrich, which makes my heart skip a few beats. Combining exotic ostrich with the hottest color of the season is a sure fire hit. The gold tone hardware is a luxurious accent along with the seamed body. Looking at this bag makes me think I just got off of an exhilarating African Safari and catches me like a deer in head lights. via designerhandbags2010.

Sounds like a fascinating read. And if it's anything like a combination of Chris Rose's "1 Dead in Attic" and Armistead Maupin's "Tales of the City" it's got to be enthralling. I will return to NOLA for the 5th anniversary of Katrina and the levee failures where I was a had been a Calif. tourist stuck in the Superdome. Lummis's book may serve as a great travel companion.
