Editorial Reviews

Review

"In all, this compilation is a fascinating way of portraying Maddox through the eyes of his friends, students, and loved ones."
--David Kunian for Offbeat Magazine

"Practically every writer who lives in or once lived in New Orleans and had any contact at all with Everette Maddox has contributed something to this volume that is a loving memorial to him." --Mary McKay for The New Orleans Times-Picayune

"That he was talented we knew, that he was probably doomed we suspected, but . . . a group of fervent admirers . . . would not let him go obscurely into that good night." --Dwight Eddins for Alabama Writers' Forum

I'd like to think a bronze statue of Everette Maddox might one day stand somewhere on a sidewalk, park, or plaza in New Orleans, maybe on Oak Street, just like the one of Ignatius O'Reilly on Canal Street. Grace Bauer and Julie Cane and the sixty-plus contributors have done a great favor for us all in venerating this beloved master who sacrificed his life for poetry; well, maybe for poetry and scotch.

I loved this book and am grateful to the editors and contributors. Reading it, I remembered the time I spent with Rette as a student and as a friend in Tuscaloosa. There was so much sweetness and greatness about him, and this collection captures it all.
