By Peter J. Marina
Marina doesn't purely interview those lively city misfits—he lives between them. Down and Out in New Orleans follows their trips, depicting the lives of these at the social fringes of a resilient urban. Marina unearths paintings as a bartender, highway mime, and poet. alongside the way in which, he visits homeless shelters, squats in deserted structures, attends rituals in cemeteries, and befriends writers, musicians, occultists, and artists as they appear for inventive ideas to the contradictory calls for of overdue capitalism. Marina does for brand new Orleans what Orwell did for Paris a century past, offering a rigorous, unrelenting, and unique glimpse into the subcultures of a urban in quick change.
