Inhaltsangabe: It is 1891 in New Orleans, and young Typhus Morningstar cycles under the light of the half-moon to fulfill his calling, re-birthing aborted foetuses in the fecund waters of the Mississippi River. He cannot know that nearby, events are unfolding that will change his life forever - events that were set in motion by a Vodou curse gone wrong, forty years before he was born. In the humble home of Sicilian immigrants, a one-year-old boy has been possessed by a demon. His father dead, lynched by a mob, his distraught mother at her wits' end, this baby who yesterday could only crawl and gurgle is now walking, dancing, and talking - in a voice impossibly deep. The doctor has fled, and several men of the cloth have come and gone, including Typhus' father, warned off directly by the clear voice of his Savoir. A newspaper man, shamed by the part he played in inciting the lynch mob that cost this boy his father, appalled by what he sees, goes in search of help. Seven will be persuaded, will try to help...and all seven will be profoundly affected by what takes place in that one-room house that dark night. Not all will leave alive, and all will be irrevocably changed by this demonic struggle, and by the sound of the first notes blown of a new musical form: jazz.
Über den Autor: Louis Maistros is a longtime resident of the New Orleans 8th Ward neighborhood. Along with his wife Elly, he owns and operates Louie's Juke Joint, a combination jazz record shop and Vodou botanica. Maistros is a former forklift operator and a self-taught writer. His work has appeared in the New Orleans Times-Picayune and the Baltimore City Paper. He is mildly self-conscious about the fact that he shares a birthday with Lee Harvey Oswald, and is currently working out a conspiracy theory about that.

Buchbeschreibung TOBY PRESS, 2009. Hardcover. Buchzustand: Good. Noonday Morningstar, an African American Baptist preacher, a possessed one-year-old boy, and Dr. Jack, an abortionist and witch doctor are just three of the colorful characters in Louis Maistros' wildly creative novel, 'The Sound of Building Coffins.' The time is 1891, the place New Orleans, and there is a strange mix of religion, evil, and music in the air. Interlayed in the battle between good and evil is the introduction of a new form of music: jazz. This combination of beauty and terror makes for an intriguing and captivating story about life in New Orleans at the cusp of the 20th century. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 641814
