    One thought on “Anti-requiem: New Orleans Stories”

    1. Unique Nwalins voice. Really original, moving stories based on post Katrina New Orleans people and attitudes. A free ebook whose contents were in some cases previously published in newspapers or blogs.

    2. Book of short stories all based in New Orleans. The author captures the city so well that it made me homesick. I'll definitely be reading his full novel "The Sound of Building Coffins"

    3. This book helped me to remember what I love and miss about New Orleans.I needed that. The storm (K) and Ray Nagin caused me to hate the city for far too long.

    4. True rating: 3.5 starsI downloaded Anti-Requiem as a Kindle Daily Deal, and while I really enjoyed most of it, I don't quite know how to categorize this particular work. For the most part, this is a lovely little series of short stories/vignettes set in New Orleans that does an admirable job of capturing the beat of the city (I imagine, at least, since I've never been.) Maistros eschews the tourist-trap elements of the city and instead goes for the stories of the downtrodden; if I were into usin [...]

    5. I decided to read this book with the misperception that it was a collection of short stories. I had recently completed this author's work about New Orleans in the period between 1890 and 1920, which was a masterful telling of the stories, struggles, and superstitions of the city's lower class mixed-race inhabitants. Turns out this "book" is actually a few chapters from the "Coffins" novel, some chapters from an upcoming book, then some letters to his infant son. Finally there are some serious re [...]

    6. This is such an enjoyable read. Perhaps because I expected stories of despair and of a storm-ravaged New Orleans. Instead, I found stories full of mysticism, hope, jazz, soul and a profound sense of belonging. Stories of hope, not because the characters are immune to tragedy, pain or poverty. These are stories of incredible characters (some really do seem fictional) who have chosen to smile and hope for the best. L. Maistros beautifully crafted the city and the people of New Orleans that made hi [...]

    7. Disturbing, dark, and depressing. A collection of short stories, all set in New Orleans, with not a upbeat, pleasant or happy one in the bunch. If you enjoy short stories about murder, abortion, murder-suicide, crazy people, death, hurricane distruction, homeless people, punks, and graphic descriptions of someone getting his thumb chopped off, them this book might be your thing. If you are looking for something more pleasant, then you might want to take a pass on this one. I wish I had.

    8. How dare I compose a reviewI'm not a writer and have never claimed to be. But I am a passionate lover of New Orleans and all its forms of cerebral stimuli. Anti-requiem is just that. A gift of thoughts, feelings and emotions captured forever in the written medium.

    9. A little disappointing. This starts out with some really brilliant vignettes of people in New Orleans and then devolves into so-so editorials and the author's personal correspondence. Not what I expected after the great first third of the book.

    10. Storiesbits of truth and fiction that may have appeared in books. letters, notes, blog essays that occasionally soar, but sometimes just tell. a wrapping up of my streak of booklet in NOLA.

    11. Quirky and different but for a former resident of New Orleans this was like a little slice of life that I've been missing.

    12. I do wish I had skipped the story that came with a warning - gruesome. While this was a good read, I highly recommend The Sound of Nailing Coffins.
