When life in the Big Easy was easy

Tennessee Williams & Pancho Rodriguez, New Orleans, 1946

As the situation in New Orleans grows ever more perilous, readers have been responding to my call for links about the area’s literary history. Evangeline of Baton Rouge points to this Lost and Found Sound episode featuring bits of “cardboard recordings” playwright Tennessee Williams left in a trunk while visiting friends.

More literary New Orleans to come.
