From the All Music Guide:
Mild romantic balladeer Eddy Howard was a huge name in the 1940s and early '50s. Reeling off a few dozen hit singles in the post-war years, he rarely went uptempo or derivated from good-natured paeans to heart-to-heart bliss. Howard left Stanford Medical School in the early '30s to join Dick Jurgens' band as a vocalist, and recorded eight hits with Jurgens in 1939 and 1940. During this era, he also made some small-band jazz sides under John Hammond's auspices at Columbia; Teddy Wilson and Charlie Christian were among the musicians who supported him at these sessions. By 1941 Eddy had started his own band, and hit the jackpot with a number one single in 1946, "To Each His Own." "(I Love You) For Sentimental Reasons," "My Adobe Hacienda," "I Wonder, I Wonder, I Wonder," "Room Full of Roses," "Sin (It's No Sin)," and "Auf Weidersehn Sweetheart" were some of the biggest smashes he enjoyed prior to the mid-'50s, when the emergence of rock & roll displaced him from the airwvaes. He was a fixture on the casino circuit when he died of a cerebral hemorrhage in 1963.

Quotes:

"Louis Maistros has written a lyrical, complex, and brave novel that takes enormous risks and pulls them all off. He is a writer to watch and keep reading, a writer to cherish."
Peter Straub

"The Society of North American Magic Realists welcomes its newest, most dazzling member, Louis Maistros. His debut novel is a thing of wonder, unlike anything in our literature. It startles. It stuns. It stupefies. No novel since CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES has done such justice to New Orleans. If Franz Kafka had been able to write like Peter Straub, this might have been the result."
Donald Harington,
Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award and the Oxford-American Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Sound of Building Coffins is easily one of the finest and truest pieces of New Orleans fiction I've ever read.”
- Poppy Z. Brite

“One has to write with considerable authenticity to pull off a story steeped in magic and swamp water that examines race and class, death and rebirth, Haitian voodoo, and the beginnings of jazz in 1891 New Orleans...The plot is complex and magical, grounded in the history of the city, without being overly sentimental. There is a comfort with death as a part of life in this work that reveals deep feeling for the city and its past....Highly recommended for all fiction collections, especially where there is an interest in jazz."
- Library Journal
