Reviews - What do customers think about A Season of Night: New Orleans Life After Katrina?

Kate O'Riordan. Seattle, Wa.  Aug 8, 2008
A Season of Night is a wonderfully written story of the author's love affair with New Orleans and his personal account of his deliberate decision to move back to an abandoned neighborhood, to embrace his city and refuse to leave her. This is not a story of blame for any government agency, but rather a story of unsung heroes, like the pub and restaurant owners, the reconstruction workers and people like Mr. McNulty himself, that brought New Orleans back to life after the Katrina disaster. I would highly recommend this book and look forward to the author's next book.

A Season of Night  Aug 6, 2008
This book, more than any newspaper article or tv spot, gave an indepth, personal and heartfelt look at the disaster of Katrina. Highly recommended. It covered a range of emotions, love, loss, anger, fear, comraderie, humor............don't miss it. Can't wait for Ian McNulty's next book whatever the topic.
A touch of grace  Jul 31, 2008
This book will touch you in many ways; it is funny, poignant, enraging, but most often a very graceful book. It is clear that the author values the human experience and has artfully captured the human side of post Katrina. He even attempts a canine perspective of life after the storm with humor and great observational skills. The dark side of the aftermath is evident, but hope is woven through out the pages of this very readable book. When you start it, you won't want to put it down. When you finish it, you will feel like you know the author well and will probably want to read the book again! I highly recommend this book. I am giving it to all my close friends as a way to say I care about them.
This Old House: Sisyphus looses an Avalanche on the Confederacy of Dunces  Jul 28, 2008
Just finished "Season of Night". Too much to savor and process in a capsule review, but a funny, absurd, sad, beautiful and moving work... Fantastically written: serious, simple, unadorned but elegant, clear, precise, emotional but without cloying sentiment or maudlin nonsense, a lucid prose analysis of an impossibly comlex series of crises, personal and universal at once... LOVED it and am in awe of the accomplishment both as a piece of writing and the reality of the story itself... Thank you, Mr. McNulty
Ian McNulty: Knight errant in the unsinkable Crescent City  Jul 22, 2008
Ian McNulty's debut is a must read for those who wondered what New Orleans was really like after Katrina once you go beyond Jazz Fest and the Mardi Gras floats and the sporadic coverage that the recovery has received in the last few years. With a true feel for the grittiness and beauty peeking out from the rubble, McNulty captures a sense of New Orlean's anguish and struggle to rebuild. Most of all, he imparts to the reader a sense of how lonely, sad, depressing and desperate life was for the year following Katrina, and how ordinary people faced with extraordinarily daunting circumstances can huddle together in the dark and share some small piece of happiness. I guarantee you will read it in one sitting and laugh and cry while you do.
