From the press release: Flight Risk: Memoirs of a New Orleans Bad Boy takes off as a page-turning narrative with deep roots and a wide wingspan. James Nolan, a fifth-generation New Orleans native, offers up an intimate portrait both of his insular hometown and his generation’s counterculture. He is a widely published fiction writer, poet, essayist, and translator. He has taught at universities in San Francisco, Florida, Barcelona, Madrid, and Beijing, as well as in his native New Orleans.

Books will be available for purchase through the Garden District Book Shop.
