Cheryl Wagner’s “Wound, Tooth, Time”

May 27th, 2009 by Josh Neufeld  

New Orleans writer Cheryl Wagner had a wonderful back-page piece in the New York Times magazine last month, which I’m linking to here. Though a mere 800 words, it uses the story of a bedraggled hurricane-survivor cat to evocatively describe post-Katrina New Orleans. Wagner’s gritty, humorous prose perfectly captures the unique character of the Crescent City, which emerged unscathed from the storm. Check out Wagner’s new memoir Plenty Enough Suck to Go Around: A Memoir of Floods, Fires, Parades and Plywood, out now from Citadel Press.
