My New Orleans, Gone Away: A Memoir of Loss and Renewal

'“A heartfelt, intimate, and painfully honest account of the coming of age of one shy boy and of the exotic city he left behind, but will never forget. A story of the courage of breaking away and the ‘you are there’ descriptions of places and people that make the reader part of this narrative of struggle and triumph.” —Barbara Goldsmith, author of the bestselling Little Gloria, Happy at Last “My New Orleans, Gone Away is the triumph of a memoirist with the eye of an architect and the heart of a poet. With admiration, and occasionally, awe, I shared the development of his feelings and taste. This may very well be a modest classic of that enchanted city’s art, culture, lifestyle and vanishing monuments.” —Sidney Offit, author of Memoir of the Bookie’s Son “Peter Wolf’s book is a charming, insightful memoir, which is beautifully written and descriptive of what it was like to grow up Jewish in New Orleans in the mid-20th century. Peter’s journey is worth reading for those who enjoy memoirs steeped with interesting people, places and experiences.” —Scott Cowen, president, Tulane University'
