New Orleanzee
... And then we decided we'd quit our jobs and have an adventure. So we went to New Orleans. Why New Orleans ? I don't know....
Robert Stone , 1937 - 2015
It was here in New Orleans that Robert Stone wrote his first novel : A Hall of Mirrors , later turned it to a screenplay for the film adaptation of Hall of Mirrors , also received the Faulkner Award for the best first novel of 1967

    A Hall of Mirrors gave us a picture of the American dream turned nightmare, chronicling the downward spiral of several lost souls who have washed up in the city of New Orleans while giving us a harrowing - and eerily prescient- portrait of right wing demagogy and its pandering to racist fears through the mass media .

    It's very difficult to be even basically decent ; it is much easier for people to betray themselves than we think it is
