The Best of the Book Nook: 'Chasing the Devil's Tail: A Mystery of Storyville, New Orleans' by David Fullmer

Chasing the Devil's Tail: A Mystery of Storyville, New Orleans by David Fulmer

In 2003, Vick Mickunas interviewed author David Fullmer about the release of his first published novel, Chasing the Devil's Tail: A Mystery of Storyville, New Orleans.

(Original Recording Made in 2003)

In 2003 I interviewed David Fullmer for his first published novel. It was a crime novel set in New Orleans during the early 1900's. Fullmer went on to create a series of seven books in all. The most recent one came out a few years ago and all of them are currently still in print. At this time of year a lot of people think about New Orleans, Mardi Gras, etc. Most of of us cannot go there. In lieu of that let's travel there in our imaginations with this interview about a lost version of New Orleans that was quite the place to be.
