Underground Voices to Release Vicki Salloum's Novel, Faulkner & Friends (September 21st, 2014)
Underground Voices will release Vicki Salloum's novel, set in New Orleans. William Greenway, Ph.D., Author of Everywhere at Once, writes: "If I didn't know better, I'd swear there's something in the water coming down the river that blooms good writers in New Orleans like magnolia blossoms: Faulkner, Rice, Percy, Toole, etc. And now here's the newest one to squeeze the heart to offer up its secrets. Faulkner & Friends is a wonderful read; that it's set in New Orleans is lagniappe."

)-- Vicki Salloum's novel focuses on Annie Ajami's New Orleans' book store which provides not just a book store but a salon and haven for writers, and a beacon of culture in a run-down neighborhood. But just when the fledgling store seems destined to become financially viable, offering a lifeline to a better future for the destitute characters who have become her adopted family, the shop is plunged into a world of violence and Annie's dream for a literary life falls to ruin, like scattered pages from a broken bookbinding.
