The Saint Louisans is available for pre-order at retailers and online in paperback for $15.95 or as an e-book for $9.99. In The Saint Louisans local readers will nod their heads knowingly, recognizing the richly written characters. But, you don’t have to be a native to enjoy this poignant portrait of the often crazy, always complicated lives an “average” family.
The Saint Louisans is a tragi-comic study of human and urban death and renewal that evokes the work of Tennessee Williams and Sara Teasdale, two Saint Louisans who wanted to be buried at sea but who never got their wish.
